Trump: "Democrats Perhaps Rather See Us Not Do Well Than See Our Country Do Great"

On Thursday, in his first speech following the State of the Union, President Trump addressed the Republican Congressional retreat at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Trump touted the tax cut, job numbers, and unemployment numbers. The president said the "stone cold, no smile, no applause" reaction from Democrats when he noted low African-American and Hispanic unemployment numbers "perhaps" shows they "rather see us not do well than see our country do great." <blockquote>PRESIDENT TRUMP: We are a nation of builders, and dreamers and strivers and fighters. And together we're building a safe, strong and very proud America. Already since the election, we've created 2.4 million jobs. That's unthinkable. And that doesn't include all of the things that are happening. You're going to see numbers that get even better. The stock market has added more than $8 trillion in new wealth. Unemployment claims are at a 45-year low, which is something. After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages. African-American and Hispanic unemployment have both reached the lowest levels ever recorded. That's something very, very special. And when I made that statement the other night, there was zero movement from the Democrats. They sat there stone cold, no smile, no applause. You would've thought that on that one, they would've sort of at least clapped a little bit. Which tells you perhaps they'd rather see us not do well than see our country do great, and that's not good. That's not good.</blockquote> (via <a href="">Breitbart Video</a>)
