Trump used ‘I’ significantly less than Obama’s first joint session speech

President Trump referred to himself during his first speech to a joint session of Congress at a much lower rate than former President Barack Obama did in his first address in February 2009, roughly half as often. Trump used the word I 40 times and said my 12 times during his speech at the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday evening. During Obama’s first such address eight years earlier, he said I a total of 68 times and my on eight occasions. A full transcript of Trump’s address is available here.
