Donald Trump was frustrated that he wasn't receiving a standing ovation after he boasted that farmers will now be able to keep their farms within their families (even though they always have been able to) now that he signed the Republican tax bill into law. After he delivered that line and a solid majority of the audience was not giving him a standing ovation, he directed the crowd to stand up and cheer for him.

Quote | Trump was irked that the audience wasn't standing and cheering their adoration.

“Get up,” Trump said as the audience started clapping.

“That was a tough one to get,” he added. “That was a tough one. Obviously you love your families, otherwise, you wouldn’t be standing for that one.”
