Though Pelosi drew attention from many on social media earlier this week for what people called a “sarcastic clap” she directed at Trump during his State of the Union speech, the California Democrat told reporters on Wednesday that the applause was sincere.
“It wasn’t sarcastic,” she said, according to Fox News.
“I wanted him to know that was a very welcome message,” she added at the time.
However, Pelosi’s comments about her emphatic applause, which came in response to Trump’s call for an end to “revenge politics” during his address, didn’t stop the moment from becoming one of the more memorable images of Tuesday’s address.
