During a Tuesday morning interview on CNN’s “New Day,” Senator Cory Booker expressed his love for Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“Let me tell you right now, I love Donald Trump,” Booker told hosts Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo. “I’m going to say that. I don’t want to answer his hate with hate. I’m going to answer with love.”
“I’m not going to answer his darkness with darkness,” Booker added in response to Trump’s tweet following the New Jersey Democrat’s speech Monday night at the DNC. “I love him. I know his kids, I know his family. The children especially are good people.”
First of all, I feel lucky because he was attacking everybody else in the Senate,” he joked. “From John McCain to Elizabeth Warren, I was probably the only one left out.”
“Now that he’s finally gotten to me, thank you, Donald. I finally feel like I’m important enough that you will attack.”
If Cory Booker is the future of the Democratic Party, they have no future! I know more about Cory than he knows about himself.
