Donald Trump has surprised the world once again, but this time by actually sounding like a president. 

Speaking in front of Congress on Tuesday evening he gave Republican congressional leaders a rallying cry and even a roadmap for the future as they try to push through a sweeping and divisive agenda, including changes to healthcare and taxes. 

House Speaker Paul Ryan declared the speech as a “home run” and even critics were surprised at the measured and sometimes even conciliatory tone of Trump’s address.
