Trump says Democrats who didn't applaud his speech are 'treasonous'

A White House spokesman said Tuesday that President Donald Trump was speaking "tongue in cheek" when he said it was "treasonous" for Democrats not to applaud good news on unemployment figures in his State of the Union address. In response, the hosts on "The View" didn't hold back.

Democrats have said Trump is taking undue credit for a trend that began under President Barack Obama.

"History is not on our side", Trump acknowledged, assuring that, traditionally, the voters of the party that has won the presidency in the previous elections "become complacent" and reduce their participation in the following legislative elections, which benefits to the opposition.

The issue was highlighted during the February 6 edition of "The View", led by co-host Whoopi Goldberg sounding off.

Tenney, who sat with Democrats to show bipartisanship at Trump's State of the Union speech, said she was "appalled at the behavior of Democrats". But you look at that.

Duckworth also quoted another Republican president, Theodore Roosevelt, who said that blocking criticism of a president is "not only unpatriotic and servile", but also "morally treasonable to the American public". The first lady accompanied the president to OH, but she peeled off to visit Cincinnati's children's hospital to be briefed on the opioid epidemic while he pitched the tax cuts he signed into law just before Christmas. "Why not?" Mr. Trump said, prompting laughter.

She went on to speculate whether or not Trump could be trying to inoculate Americans to the word "treason" for his own purposes. "Like, if you don't think of it in a serious way, maybe when Mueller accuses me of treason you won't think it's such a big deal".

Brining the issue to Ohio, Trump also reminded attendees that Sen.

"They would rather see Trump do badly than our country do well".

When the reporter asked, 'Can you say for the sake of the future that you agree with that, that treason is not a punchline, ' Huckabee Sanders wouldn't.

Sanders said the president was "clearly joking", while Gidley said the comment was "tongue-in-cheek". "So, it should concern us when you hear that, you know?"

Trump, the nominal author of The Art of The Deal, likely needs Congressional Democratic support to avoid another government shutdown on his watch this week, as the lastest continuing resolution will expire on Thursday.
