EUGENE, Ore. -- Eyes across the nation will be glued to the television Tuesday night to hear what President Trump has to say about the state of our nation, including people in our area.
KEZI spoke with Eugene and Springfield residents who had mixed reactions. Some said they believe the country is in a good place especially when it comes to the economy. Other said they are disappointed in what they called, "divisiveness."
"I think what he's done is driven such a huge wedge," said Eugene resident Mary Beth Bonti. "It may have been there already but hes widened that gap."
"I think the way everything is going in this world, we need some big time changes or we're going to have some big changes coming our way," said Eugene resident, Jim Nelson.
For Raphael Rios, a Eugene resident and dreamer, immigration is a topic he plans on keeping a close eye on during the State of the Union Address.
"Whatever he decides to do at this point on will affect us 100 percent," Rios said.
A Springfield resident, who declined to comment on camera, said he's satisfied with the state of our country, especially when it comes to the economy.
