Democrat women wear white at Donald Trump's State of the Union address

Ms Frankel said wearing white would “send a message” that “promoting the economic security of women and their families” would be the party’s focus in the House in the next two years. 

The move also hinted at Democrat opposition to Mr Trump’s past controversial comments on women, most notably the 2005 Access Hollywood tape where he boasted of grabbing women in intimate places which surfaced during the 2016 campaign. 

On Tuesday morning, the most senior Republican and Democrat in the US Senate also gave assessments of the Trump presidency that laid bare their stark differences. 

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the Senate, touted the “immense progress” achieved since Mr Trump took office, citing the booming US economy. 

“It’s been more than two years since the American people hired President Trump and a Republican Congress to get Washington’s foot off the brake of our economy. Since we got to work rebuilding middle class prosperity, it’s been an all-American comeback,” Mr McConnell said.
