Trump: Democrats ‘treasonous’ for not clapping at his State of the Union

U.S. President Donald Trump says Democratic members of Congress were “un-American” and “treasonous” when they refused to clap for parts of his State of the Union address last week. Trump is complaining bitterly that they did not applaud even when he spoke of the record-low in the unemployment rate for Black residents. Three days later, new government data showed that the Black unemployment rate had spiked, from the record 6.8 per cent to 7.7 per cent. But Trump likened the Democrats’ silence to his stupidity as a capital crime. Meanwhile Trump clapped for his own lies like a good patriot.
