Trump Calls Democrats 'Treasonous' For Not Clapping During SOTU

Trump Calls Democrats 'Treasonous' For Not Clapping During SOTU

The campaign ad, per a campaign media release, "displays the predictable and consistent, yet utterly disgraceful, behavior of Democrat Members of Congress as they reacted to President Trump's first State of the Union Address to the nation".

"They were like death. Un-American. Somebody said, 'Treasonous.' I mean, yeah, I guess, why not", he said to laughter.

Speaking at a manufacturing plant in OH on Monday, the Republican president said Democrats "would rather see Trump do badly than our country do well".

Trump is promoting the tax cuts on a visit to an OH manufacturer.

Sunny Hostin was bothered by the idea because she said it seems Trump was confusing "treason" with "dissent". Their smaller, 757-version of Air Force One landed at Lunken Airport about 1:30 p.m. and took off about 4 p.m.

"History is not on our side", Trump acknowledged, assuring that, traditionally, the voters of the party that has won the presidency in the previous elections "become complacent" and reduce their participation in the following legislative elections, which benefits to the opposition.

Leave it to Trump to not understand why you don't call anything other than unfailing loyalty to the leader treasonous.


What Trump is saying is that dissent - which is what Democrats are doing when they choose not to clap for a line in his speech - is traitorous and/or un-American. Trump said. "There are a lot of people that want to run her out".

"One who levels such a charge knows neither the meaning of treason nor the power that the words of a president carry", he said in a speech on the Senate floor.

Trump pointed to a person near the front of the crowd.

"That means they would rather see Trump do badly, OK, then our country do well?"

White House correspondent Major Garrett of CBS News showed brazen courage when he brought up He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named at Tuesday's press conference.

President Donald Trump is praising his recently-passed tax overhaul law, telling workers in OH that "America is once again open for business". The accusation did not receive heavy immediate coverage in the US media, which was busy covering a rapid decline in USA stocks.

Flake, who announced he will not be seeking re-election in 2018, has said he will use his remaining time in the Senate to speak out against the President when he believes it is warranted.
