President Trump slams Democrats for not cheering positive economic news at the State of the Union: 'Can we call that treason? Why not?'
President Trump on Monday ripped into congressional Democrats who refused to applaud the “positive news” during his State of the Union address last week, calling their reaction “un-American” and accusing them of “bad energy” during the speech.
“They were like death and un-American,” Trump said during a speech in Ohio, as he promoted the sweeping tax reform law that Congress passed last year.
Trump added: “Somebody said ‘treasonist.’ I mean, yeah, I guess, why not? Can we call that treason? Why not?”
He again singled out House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, lambasting her for comments earlier this month where she used the word “crumbs” to describe the bonuses workers have received tied to the tax law changes.
“I think this is not a good day for Nancy Pelosi,” Trump said. “She’s our secret weapon…I just hope they don’t change her.”
