'US President Donald Trump has accused Democrats of "treasonous" behavior for failing to cheer enthusiastically during his recent State of the Union address.
Trump on Monday suggested that the behavior of Democrats during the State of the Union speech, which was delivered to a joint session of the US Congress on Tuesday night, 30 January, was “un-American.”
Trump denounced the lawmakers who failed to applaud during the address when he pointed out his achievements and “very positive news” in his speech, such as low unemployment rates for Hispanics and African-Americans.
"You're up there, you've got half the room going totally crazy, wild, they love everything, they want to do something great for our country," said Trump, referring to his Republican supporters in Congress. "And you have the other side, even on positive news, really positive news… they were like death, and un-American."
"Can we call that treason? Why not?" he asked during a speech in Ohio. "They certainly didn't seem to love our country very much."
Trump said the Democrats "would rather see Trump do badly than our country do well," describing their behavior as "very selfish."
Democrats and Republicans have been engaged in a bitter fight in Congress over a number of issues since Trump’s inauguration January last year. Last month, Senate Democrats caused the government shutdown when Republicans failed to reach an agreement on the stopgap funding measure to continue government services.'
