Trump says ‘OK with that’ to conservative blogger who likes Andrew Yang better than him


President Trump doesn’t care if you like the other guy better — as long as you vote for him in 2020.

The president approvingly retweeted a young conservative blogger’s tweet that she would rather be friends with Democrat Andrew Yang even though she plans to vote to reelect Trump.

“Here’s the thing: I’m voting for Trump but I wouldn’t be friends with Trump,” wrote Kassy Dillon, founder of the Lone Conservative blog. “I’m not voting for Yang but I’d definitely be his friend.”

“I’m OK with that,” Trump wrote in a retweet of Dillon’s tweet.

I’m OK with that!

Yang fired back that Trump was showing nervousness over his rising star in the crowded Democratic primary field by trying to peel off a slice of the Yang Gang vote.

“Someone is hearing footsteps,” Yang wrote on Twitter.

Yang, an entrepreneur, has emerged from total obscurity to win a solid following in the Democratic primary field.

His signature issue is a plan to give every American a guaranteed monthly stipend of $1,000 and he often jokes that his Asian background makes him good with figures.

He’s polling at 3% in the Real Clear Politics average, above far better known candidates like Sen. Cory Booker, Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
