President Trump garnered great reviews and high approval ratings for his joint address to Congress Tuesday night. Politico claimed he "hit the reset button," and many claimed this speech was Trump's long-awaited pivot to presidential behavior. Others found that assessment preposterous, and argued the standard for Trump has been set so low that a mediocre Teleprompter speech has the media hailing him as a statesman. Did Trump really hit the reset button? What do you think? 🆑

CNN correspondent, former Obama employee and frequent Trump critic Van Jones raved about the president's shift in tone:

Jones admitted that Trump's powerful moment shows he may be settling into the role: "If he finds a way to do that over and over again, he's going to be there for eight years," Jones said.
