BRIT HUME [FOX SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST]: I think [President Donald Trump's] speech writers did a good job of making a speech that was not partisan, that had a unifying theme to it, and certainly had unifying moments within it, and all of that, I think, does the president a little credit.

He has not been a unifying figure as president, but I think he's -- he reached for a unifying message tonight, and I think to a great extent, Bret, he had one.
