Feb-8

When Trump clapped his hands after a portion of his speech he was not applauding his speech, he was applauding the accomplishments of America. Trump did not improve African-American employment, America did. Trump did little to bring down unemployment, America did a lot. Trump did not drive up the Dow, America did.

Trump was upset over the Democrats not acknowledging the accomplishments of Americans. When Trump introduced individual accomplishments of people he called heroes the Democrats sat silent. They were more interested in bashing Trump than acknowledging  the works that helped make America great again. An embarrassing choice for the Democrats.

Okay, Trump is a screw up, Republicans are a screw up., Democrats are a screw up. What do we need to change here?

Yes we need change in all áreas you mentioned.

However a democrat not clapping has nothing to do with putting down American achievements, and

everything to do with the context of Trump claiming responsibility.for them.

No disagreement at all with the false claims of taking credit for the things that happened on his watch. When he introduced people's accomplishments Trump applauded their deeds. That does not imply he took credit for them. The Democrats sat still, disrespecting those accomplishments.

Why do you believe the political stuff you are told without asking if it makes sense? "Trump took credit for ... " is political nonsense. If Trump is applauding he is not taking credit for it.

Sorry, all I have ever Heard from Trump is self serving marketing.

What was the purpose of this speech if not this.

Are you basing your opinion on what you saw or what somebody else told you it was?

If Trump is applauding the accomplishments of others he is not taking credit for it. The economy? Trump did not manipulate the stock market. Black unemployment? He did not give them the jobs. He applauds the accomplishments of America.

The actions of a majority of the Democrats suggests an antagonistic conspiracy ... just like the Republicans did to Obama. Payback is a harsh mistress.

Not antagonistic conspiracy, just a spontaneous reaction to unsubstantiated crowing.

Trump´s comments in fact are not even accurate, even his positives have a dark side that he omits.

If he balanced his positives with down side facts, there would be a point.

His speech was merely mindless cheerleading, mindless applauding by his supporters.

The best way to "applaud" a country, is to praise it for what it gets right, while

not ignoring or rationalizing what it gets wrong.

so what your saying is if a person gets one thing wrong than everything he does is wrong
