Butterfield’s lack of applause speaks volumes

As I watched President Trump give the State of the Union address and discuss the positives accomplishments that have been made, I was appalled by Democrats not standing or clapping!

More jobs? No applause. Lowest unemployment? No applause. Higher wages? No applause. Less taxes? No applause. Lowest black unemployment in history? No applause, even none from the Congressional Black Caucus.

Why?

Do Democrats hate that Americans are getting help, keeping more of our money and getting higher wages?

Representative Butterfield sat with a stone face and looked as he hated every positive statement that helps the citizens of our district!

Is the lowest unemployment ever for black Americans not something for him to cheer? Evidently not. He showed he didn’t care about lowest unemployment for any American.

All voters should remember his actions when he runs for office again. Actions speak louder than words. He can promise and talk, but does nothing to help us.

Just why would you vote for him or Democrats? They only help and want to help illegals, not citizens!
