Trump Suggests Democrats Are ‘Treasonous’ for Not Applauding His SOTU

President Donald Trump on Monday suggested Democrats were “un-American” and “treasonous” for not reacting positively to his State of the Union address. During a Monday speech in Ohio, the president blasted the opposing party’s lawmakers for not applauding him even when he referenced “positive news.” He said: “They were like death. And un-American. Somebody said ‘treasonous.’ I mean, yeah, I guess, why not? Can we call that treason? Why not?”
