President Trump suggested that the Democrats who weren’t clapping for good economic news at the State of the Union may have committed some slight treason.

He called the lack-of-action “un-American” during his Monday speech in Cincinnati, Ohio.


“It’s very selfish,” Trump told the crowd. “And it got to a point where I really didn’t even want to look too much during the speech over to that side because honestly, it was bad energy. Bad energy. You’re up there, you’ve got half the room going totally crazy, wild they loved everything they want to do something great for our country. And you have the other side even on positive news, really positive news, like that, they were like, death.” (RELATED: ‘We Proudly Stand For The National Anthem’ — Trump Makes Statement Ahead Of Super Bowl)

“And un-American. Un-American. Someone said treasonous. Yeah, I guess, why not. Shall we call that treason? Why not,” he continued. “I mean they certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much. But you look at that and it’s really very, very sad. We have to keep it going, because this country is turning, it’s turning, turning much faster.” (RELATED: ‘After A Year Of Looking, There Is No Collusion!’ — Trump Goes OFF On Russia Narrative)
