President Donald Trump loves applause and giving long speeches, and Tuesday night's stemwinder State of the Union address was no exception on either count.

Trump's State of the Union address was interrupted by applause 115 times, the second-largest amount in modern history, The Daily Caller reported.

It was also the third-longest, according to CNN.

Former President Bill Clinton holds the SOTU applause record, with 128 interruptions in his 2000 State of the Union speech.

Trump's applause count put him ahead of former President Barack Obama, who was interrupted 90 times and former President George W. Bush, who reportedly notched 80 applause breaks.

Trump's speech lasted 1 hour and 20 minutes — the third-longest State of the Union in history.

According to CNN, Clinton' final State of the Union address holds the record at 1 hour 29 minutes. Clinton also holds second place for his 1995 address, which lasted an hour and 25 minutes.

Former President Barack Obama's longest speech, 2010, lasted just 1 hour and 9 minutes.
