President Trump praised Rep. Greg Gianforte’s (R-MT) body slamming a reporter in 2017, saying that anyone who did such a thing was “my kind of guy,” Politico reports.
Said Trump:” “Never wrestle him, you understand that? Any guy who can do a body slam is my kind of guy.”
He added: “I was in Rome with a lot of the leaders from other countries talking about all sorts of things and I heard about it, and we endorsed Greg very early, but I heard that he had body slammed a reporter. And he was way up, and he was up, and this was like the day of the election or just before, and I said, ‘Oh, this is terrible, he is going to lose the election, and then I said, ‘Well, wait a minute, I know Montana pretty well, I think it might help him. And it did.’”Save to Favorites
