During an interview with Bill O'Reilly for Fox News that aired Monday, Trump spoke about his relationship with former president Barack Obama, and though Trump has long waged war against Obama by insisting that he was not a citizen, critiquing his leadership skills and often tweeting ill of the former President, he swears that the two men actually like each other.
"I don’t know if he’ll admit this, but he likes me. I like him," said Trump.
“How do you know he likes you?” O’Reilly asked.
"Because I can feel it," Trump replied. "That’s what I do in life. It’s called, like, 'I understand.'"
It is very possible that Trump is mistaking Barack Obama being a grown-up for him "liking him." After all, President Obama understands that you can disagree with someone and refrain from tweeting insults about them.
“He was vicious during the campaign toward me, and I was vicious toward him." Trump went on to say during the interview. "We said horrible things about each other, and then we hop into the car and we drive down Pennsylvania Avenue together, we don’t even talk about it. Politics is amazing."
Yep. Politics sure is.
