The ad featured video of Trump's address to Congress, in which he called for everyone to "set aside our differences, to seek out common ground and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve."

Trump during the address also touted the creation of new jobs and the country's unemployment rates. He said there has "never been a better time to start living the American dream."

In text, the ad said that Trump asked Democrats to join him in "standing up for America."

"Instead, they just sat there," the ad said in text.

The ad accused Democrats of "disrespecting our people" and "disrespecting our country."

"It's disgraceful," the ad says in text at the end.

In a statement, Michal S. Glassner, executive director of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said Trump's State of the Union address was so profound that "even the mainstream media called it 'strong' and 'inspirational.' "

“Yet, our ad demonstrates that the unprecedented expressions of disrespect shown by the Democrats towards our people and our country were also profound — for the wrong reasons," he said in the statement.

"The breathtaking indifference in reaction to President Trump’s calls for unity and to the President’s bold stories of freedom-loving heroes speaks for itself. The Democrats just sat there, and they were disgraceful."

Trump on Monday accused Democrats of "treasonous" behavior during his State of the Union address.

He took aim at Democratic lawmakers who refused to applaud during last week's speech when he mentioned his achievements during his first year in office.

"They were like death and un-American. Un-American. Somebody said, 'Treasonous.' I mean, yeah, I guess, why not," Trump said during a speech in Ohio.

"Can we call that treason? Why not? I mean they certainly didn't seem to love our country very much."
