#39 – Final State of the Union Address

January 12, 1977

In his final State of the Union Address, President Gerald R. Ford tells Congress and the American People, “I can report that the state of the Union is good. There is room for improvement, as always, but today we have a more perfect Union than when my stewardship began.” By the end of President Ford’s term, inflation is at a 4-year low; America is free of the Vietnam War; and its international relations with Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union and Asia are steadily improving.
