Donald Trump Jr.: My Favorite Democrat Is Mitt Romney

Donald Trump Jr.: My Favorite Democrat Is Mitt Romney

Donald Trump Jr. has joked that his favorite Democrat is Republican Senator Mitt Romney. President Donald Trump’s eldest son appeared on CBS This Morning on Monday to promote his new book and defend his father. He mentioned Romney in what may have been an attempt to say something nice.

As the interview was coming to an end, the hosts encouraged Trump Jr. to say something positive. Just before the cameras cut away, host Gayle King asked him a softball question designed to elicit a fun answer.

“Who is your favorite Democrat?” King asked.

“Woo,” Trump Jr. responded. It looked like he wasn’t going to answer and the show was proceeding to the weather repoer as he piped up.

“Mitt Romney, Gayle,” Trump Jr. said. “Mitt Romney’s my favorite Democrat.”

Romney, of course, is the Republican senator from Utah and 2012 Republican presidential candidate. He has been the focus of some of the President’s ire amid the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
