Trump Calls Democrats Treasonous For Not Applauding For Him

Speaking to a crowd of supporters in Ohio yesterday, Donald Trump called Democrats “treasonous” for not applauding when he listed his achievements to Congress during his State of the Union address last Tuesday.

“Can we call that treason? Why not?” Trump said during a speech about the GOP tax. “They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much.”

Here’s the video:

Well, treason is a very serious word to casually throw around. There’s a reason no one has been convicted of the crime in the U.S. since World War II.

So, you can understand why some folks got a bit upset about the comment, including Democratic lawmakers like Sen. Tammy Duckworth and Rep. Tim Walz who spent years and years serving their country in the military. That’s something, by the way, that Trump never did.
