President Donald Trump headed to a factory in Cincinnati, Ohio on Monday to accuse Democrats of being “un-American” and “treasonous” for failing to stand during his State of the Union address last week.
Cincinnati.com reported that Trump mocked Democrats for voting against his new tax law in December and for staying glued to their seats while he spoke of low unemployment rates and other economic successes. He also said that Democrats would pay a price in the 2018 midterm elections and in the 2020 presidential election for not getting behind his policies.
“Someone said ‘treasonous,’” Trump said. “Can you call that treason? Why not? They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much.”
Trump used his speech to pitch the new tax law as a boon for the nation’s economy and American workers. Trump told the crowd at Sheffer Corp. that the tax law would increase wages and bring back millions of jobs.
“I wanted to give something very big back,” Trump told a cheering crowd. “Your paychecks are going way up. Your taxes are going way down. America is once again open for business.”
Trump also fired back at Democrats and economists who have said the improving economy has been recovering for years and is not suddenly on the rebound because of his presidency.
“I am non-braggadocious,” Trump said, going on his leadership as crucial to the nation’s economic success.
“It’s amazing what people with good ideas can do,” he said. “Wait til you see GDP over the next few years. Wait til you see what we’re going to do.”
Trump decided to visit Sheffer Corps. because it’s a big beneficiary of the tax law he signed in December after Republicans passed it with little public debate and no Democratic support. These cuts are temporary and will begin expiring in 2025, at which point they will return to previous levels and, in some cases, exceed them.
