The first version of the speech Trump delivered to Congress on Monday night was not the speech that was widely reported, according to several lawmakers briefed on the remarks.
Trump’s speech was delivered on the day he was elected president, not the day after, according the lawmakers.
The lawmakers told Recode that there are a number of reasons for the delay in publishing the speech, including that Trump has not yet met with them.
In addition, the lawmakers said they are still working on the transcript.
Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday.
Trump told the crowd that the U.S. is on the verge of a nuclear showdown with North Korea and that the president-elect has called the nuclear threat “an existential threat.”
Trump also criticized the media, calling the press “the enemy of the American people.”
“We are the most dishonest media in the history of the world,” Trump said.
“We will destroy them.”
Trump’s supporters cheered loudly when he said he had done a great job as president.
The president-Elect did not mention any of the major issues that have dominated the first 100 days of his presidency, such as immigration, healthcare and taxes.
