President Trump accused Democrats today of carrying out “treasonous” behavior, because they did not clap and applaud him during his State of the Union address.
“Can we call that treason? Why not?” Trump said during a speech in Ohio, “They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much.” You can see it all in the footage below.

Trump has bragged about the stock market much of his presidency, but today it is down immensely, after already enduring a previous fall last week. I would caution though, that the drop could just be people taking profits. Regardless, it certainly has Trump worried, because it may be the start of a very big drop.
Trump also attacked Democratic congressional leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), despite claiming he wants to work with them.
