Donald Trump Jr. said Wednesday his father's State of the Union address made him not only proud of him as a son, but also as an American, and he is puzzled Democrats refused to stand and clap for some of the achievements that have been reached.
"The bottom line, there is always going to be resistance," Trump Jr. told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" about President Donald Trump's Tuesday night address. "So many things, (like) all-time low Hispanic unemployment, all-time low African-American unemployment, the fact that the state of the union is strong. When you see the Democrats not standing for that, I mean those are things we all can agree on."
Trump Jr. said Democrats will put up "fake resistance" for political purposes, but his father is a "game-time player" who "delivered."
He also questioned opposition to his father's demands for border wall funding and the lack of response from Democrats when the president addressed it.
"Most of the people in that room, even Democrats had voted for the wall and other border security measures," Trump Jr. said. "Now that Donald Trump is in there, now that you have a president that is finally getting things done, not just talking about it, actually delivering on his campaign promises, actually making things happen, actually moving America forward and gaining our respect again in the world, now they're against it because they don't want to give him a perceived political win to deliver yet another campaign promise."
