Trump slams 'treasonous' Democrats for not applauding

Trump slams 'treasonous' Democrats for not applauding”

Un-American. Somebody said treasonous.

Thank you, President Trump.

Photo During a speech on Monday at a factory in Ohio, President Trump chided Democrats for not clapping during his State of the Union address. Less than a week ago, Trump stood before the nation and called for a new era of bipartisan cooperation. I said you have the lowest black unemployment in the history of our country. A week later, such talk is but a distant memory.

The comment refers to Trump receiving a draft deferment for bone spurs in his foot during the Vietnam War.

"We don't live in a dictatorship or a monarchy", she wrote.

"You can not reject bipartisan plans to improve health care and protect Dreamers or sow hate and division - and then turn around the next day and say you want to work together", said Democratic Sen. "And she's gone so far left and Schumer has gone so far left", he said. And you have the other side even on positive news, really positive news like that, they were like death and un-American.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday the President was "clearly joking" when he made the comment.

"It was tongue in cheek".

"The President was obviously joking", he said. "I had Democrats sitting behind me that sat on their hands, not seeing what the President was trying to do", Tenney said. "Un-American. Somebody said, 'treasonous.' I mean, yeah, I guess, why not?" "But treason is not a punchline, Mr. President", he said. "Flake has to say".

Asked if Republicans were equally resistant to President Barack Obama during his State of the Union speeches, Tenney insisted they were not.

The spin on the controversial comments fits a pattern: Trump - as president or candidate - says something that causes controversy and the people around him look to calm the brouhaha by claiming Trump was joking and the media needs to get a better sense of humor. Can we call that treason? "Why not?" he asked, lobbing an extraordinary accusation. And they don't love our country.

Trump also accused the party of not wanting to secure the nation's borders. "You have them both", he said. "Like, don't hit their head, and they just killed somebody - don't hit their head". That was a reference to a violent street gang.

After Trump urged Russian Federation to "find the 30,000 emails that are missing" from Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's account, his aides and advisers said the candidate was just joking.

The congresswoman was particularly offended that Democrats were not more enthusiastic about Trump's offer to grant a path to citizenship to the 1.8 million immigrants eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Trump has tried to put the onus on Democrats for failing to embrace his plans.

"It'll help us make ends meet", one worker said. They had a great visit earlier today.

The criticism continued throughout the week.

He predicted that the GOP will do "incredibly well" in the 2018 midterms. Little Adam Schiff for President, 2020. Trump called Schiff "one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington" and said he "Must be stopped!"

Trump made the remarks during a speech in a Cincinnati suburb where he was promoting the tax bill he signed into law last December.

As for Pelosi, who represents San Francisco, Trump said, "She's a rich woman who lives in a big lovely house". That comment, he predicted, will have as much of an impact as Hillary Clinton's dismissive "deplorable" comments during the 2016 presidential election.
