A group of paid Donald Trump sycophants who accompany him at various public events and applaud his every utterance in an attempt to make his pronouncements appear more popular than they actually are. The Applause Team also regularly frequents Trump press conferences, where they are assigned the task of jeering at any reporter who dares to ask a question which might make Trump uncomfortable or trick him into providing a truthful response. The term Applause Team was first popularized by retired US intelligence expert Malcolm Nance.
The Applause Team's raucous applause at a choreographed Trump appearance at the CIA Memorial Wall sullied the memory of 117 American heroes in a transparent and pathetic attempt to falsely make it appear that there was broad support for the new president among CIA employees after he had questioned their patriotism and falsely equated members of the US intelligence agencies with Nazi Germany .
