There used to be a time when Democrats and Republicans could come together and agree on the most basic principles--a prosperous middle class, for example, or low unemployment rates among minorities--but no, many Democrats despise President Trump so much that past unifiers have become divisive issues. Below is a list of surprising topics many of those on the Left refused to applaud during President Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Making the middle class prosperous.
EARLIER: "We must create a new standard of living for the 21st century," Trump says in his State of the Union address, "to make the middle class more prosperous than ever before" #SOTU pic.twitter.com/y4odgw95Dz— TicToc by Bloomberg (@tictoc) February 6, 2019
Rising wages for blue-collar workers.
Low unemployment rates among minorities, the disabled, and women.
President said unemployment is at a all time low for African Americans and the Disabled. Here’s Democrat’s respond to success. pic.twitter.com/AYfVpAbmdF— Dr Michael Chitwood (@drmchitwood) February 6, 2019
Being the best producer of oil and natural gas (with the notable exception of Sen. Joe Manchin).

Taking care of veterans.
The child tax credit.
Immigrants coming in legally.
A featured guest--an immigrant ICE agent who saved hundreds of women and girls from sex traffickers.
This is how disgusting & low @TheDemocrats/#Socialists have fallen: @AOC couldn’t even bring herself to stand (until LITERALLY EVERYONE ELSE DID), nor clap - to recognize an #IMMIGRANT (now an #ICE agent) responsible for saving 100s of girls & arresting 1500(!) traffickers! #SOTU pic.twitter.com/7RsHad56hA— WB1725 (@Wbowman17) February 6, 2019
ICE in general.
Trump recognizes grandchildren whose grandparents were recently killed by illegal immigrants.— Benny (@bennyjohnson) February 6, 2019
They were in the gallery with the First Lady.
While the majority of Dems stood & applauded for the children - not joking - I could easily see 10-12 who did not.
5 million people off of food stamps.
Elimination of Obamacare penalty.
Banning late-term abortion.
Trump calls for a law prohibiting killing a baby when the baby can “feel pain.”— Benny (@bennyjohnson) February 6, 2019
“All children - born and unborn- are made in the holy image of God,” Trump said.
I’ve been in the gallery all night.
NEVER was there a more solid block of Dems frowning, not clapping, looking angry
Deescalating tensions with North Korea.
Amazing. Many many Democrats sit while Trump talks about freedom in Venezuela by rejecting Maduro. After all, agreeing would expose that socialism sucks. #SOTU— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) February 6, 2019
Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.
Why do Jewish people vote Democrat? This is the Democrats sitting silent when President Trump mentioned moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. Democrats do not care about Israel or the Jewish people. Twitter will censor this comment. pic.twitter.com/6Dg12xZ1SA— ????American???? (@America99018802) February 6, 2019
Genocide of Jews.
So, Democrats won't stand against genocide of Jews? Weird. #SOTU— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) February 6, 2019
