Representatives Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Adam Schiff (D-CA) did not stand or applaud during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday after the president emphasized the importance of accomplishing “victories that deliver for the American people.”
“Members of Congress, we must never forget that the only victories that matter in Washington are victories that deliver for the American people,” said President Trump on Tuesday evening.
Nadler and Schiff were not the only representatives seen refusing to give a standing ovation in response to the president’s remarks about putting Americans first on Tuesday night.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did not stand or applaud in response to President Trump announcing that a young girl from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, would be granted a scholarship so that she can go to the school of her choice.
Later, as the State of the Union address concluded, Pelosi could be seen ripping apart a copy of President Trump’s speech.
