President Donald Trump praised the abilities of German Shepherds on Monday but said it would be “phony” if he had a pet dog of his own.
“There is nothing better than a good old-fashioned German Shepherd,” Donald Trump said during a campaign rally in El Paso, Texas.
“You do love your dogs, don’t you?” Trump acknowledged as the crowd cheered.
Trump said he would not mind having a pet dog but said he did not have the time to be with it.
As the crowd cheered, Trump admitted that people had recommended that he get a dog so that it would “look good politically.”
