(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) President Trump said during an epic interview with Tucker Carlson that he would not attack California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, because Newsom flattered him; but suspicions have surface that the real reason might be related to Don Jr.’s engagement to Newsom’s ex-wife.
Trump shocked Carlson by describing his relationship with Newsom as chummy.
“I used to get along great with him when I was president. Got along really good … Gavin,” Trump said.
“You got along with Gavin Newsom?” Carlson asked.
“I did. I really did,” President Trump affirmed. “He was always very nice to me, said the greatest things. He would say things like, ‘He’s doing a great job.’”
Carlson, still stunned, didn’t believe the president.
“About you?” he asked.
“About me,” Trump confirmed. “That’s why I could never hit him because he was so nice to me, just laying in wait right? But he was very nice to me, relatively speaking.”
Trump even offered some mild praise, followed by an attack, of Newsom when discussing potential Democrat candidates in the same interview.
“You have a very ambitious guy in California,” he said, “but he’s done a terrible job with the state.”
Newsom has heaped praise on Trump for his emergency relief and honesty, according to RedState.
“He [President Trump] said everything I could have hoped for,” Newsom said. “And we had a very long conversation and every single thing he said, they followed through on.”
Another explanation for the odd pairing of Trump and Newsom is a political love triangle between the radical leftist and the Trump family.
Kimberly Guilfoyle married Gavin Newsom in 2001, and got divorced in 2005, according to Newsweek. Guilfoyle is now engaged to Donald Trump Jr, per her Instagram post. Thus, the Trump/Newsom love fest could be explained by Trump’s need to not anger his future daughter-in-law.
As the Trump/Newsom ceasefire continues, Newsom is engaged in a bitter feud with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, according to Politico.
