(FOX NEWS) – President Trump, in his first State of the Union address before a divided Congress, railed against “the politics of revenge” and “partisan investigations” as he appealed for unity at a time when Washington is struggling to break a deadlock over border security funding that threatens to trigger another government shutdown in a matter of days.

Touting economic gains during his first two years in office, as well as legislative wins on issues like criminal justice reform, Trump warned Tuesday that deepening partisan tensions undermine America’s progress.

“An economic miracle is taking place in the United States — and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations,” Trump said, in an apparent reference to Democratic congressional probes of his administration and possibly to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation. It just doesn’t work that way.”
