At Trump's first State of the Union address, Democrats represented the disapproval of the majority of the American people.
Donald Trumps first State of the Union Address took place on Tuesday night.
And although he did his utmost to pretend he was a unifier, the reaction he met on the floor of the House proved what a weak facade his efforts were.
As Trump entered the building and walked to the podium, though Republicans cheered and whistled, Democrats represented the disapproval of the majority of the American people, standing in stony, defiant silence.
This is not to say, however, that no Democrats had any reaction to Trumps entrance.
According to Business Insider reporter Joe Perticone, the entire time Trump made his way across the House floor to the podium, Democratic New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell stood with a pocket-sized Constitution held aloft.
Trump has proven to be the most divisive president in modern times, from his blatant racism, to a completely one-sided right-wing agenda, to his attempts to undermine the FBI and the rule of law as he faces federal investigation. The welcome he received at his address was exactly what he has earned.
