President Donald Trump ripped Democrats who didn't to his mind properly celebrate good economic news during last week's State of the Union address, saying Monday they were "un-American" and possibly treasonous.
Speaking in Ohio, Trump said he got "good marks" for the State of the Union address, and he noted the sour expressions of many Democrats while he touted such stats as the country currently having low levels of overall unemployment and African-American unemployment.

"That means they would rather see Trump do badly than our country do well. That's what it means. It's very selfish," Trump said.
He said he didn't think he wanted to look at the Democratic side of the room for his address, saying it was "bad energy."
"Even on positive news … they were like death, and un-American. Un-American. Somebody said treasonous," Trump said, pointing at the crowd. "Yeah, I guess. Why not? Can we call that treason? Why not? I mean, they certainly didn't seem to love our country very much."
