President Trump unloaded on ‘un-American’ Democrats this week during an event in Ohio, slamming the liberal lawmakers over their “selfish” sit-in during his first annual State of the Union address.
The President was discussing taxes and the US economy when he called-out left-wing legislators who refused to stand or applaud any positive news at his joint address to Congress last week.
“Did anybody happen to see the State of the Union address? I said, ‘You have the lowest black unemployment in the history of our country.’ They were told don’t even make a facial movement,” said the President.
“Dead silence, not a smile… So that means they would rather see Trump do badly than our country do well. That’s what it means, it’s very selfish,” he added.
“Honestly, it was bad energy. You’re up there, and you’ve got half the room going totally crazy and wild, and you’ve got the other side -even on positive news- they were like death. Un-American. Somebody said treasonous… yeah, why not?” Trump quipped.
“They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much,” he added.
