President Donald Trump prompted cheers from the freshmen female House Democrats when he touted the number of new jobs created that women have filled.
The women — dressed in white in honor of early 20th-century suffragettes — stood on their feet, with one raising her hands in the air in a “raise the roof” motion.
Trump seemed taken back by the outbursts. “You weren’t supposed to do that,” he said before congratulating all the women who hold seats in Congress. The women jumped back up and high-fived each other, chanting “U-S-A!”
