The future of the Democratic Party, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and several other House Democrats refused to stand and applaud President Trump’s call for compromise during his State of the Union address on Tuesday.

“But, we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good,” Trump declared.

Trump’s remarks generated enthusiastic applause from those gathered in the House, most notably Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who was sitting behind Trump and began applauding his comments almost immediately.

However, CNN’s cameras quickly fixated on Ocasio-Cortez who, along with several other House Democrats, remained firmly seated.
