'He's a Terrible Actor': Trump Jr. Rips Booker for Warning That US Is on 'Disturbing' Path
Donald Trump Jr. called Sen. Cory Booker a "terrible actor" Thursday after the New Jersey Democrat said Americans should be "deeply disturbed" by the Trump administration's policies.
"If this country hasn’t broken your heart, you don’t love her enough. If you are not deeply disturbed by what is coming, you’ve got to check your own love," Booker told the We the People Summit in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
"Some people call it patriotism, that’s a fine word, but understand patriotism is love of country and you cannot love your country unless you love your fellow countrymen and women."
Booker, who is seen as a 2020 presidential hopeful, addressed people of faith, calling on them to show their religion by how they "treat other people."
Speaking on "Fox & Friends," Trump Jr. said Booker will oppose anything President Trump proposes, including prison reform.
"Two weeks ago, we put forth prison reform legislation that he's been fighting for since the beginning of his career and all of a sudden he's against it," said Trump Jr., arguing that Democrats have no issues to run on in November.
"[Booker] looks like he's auditioning to be a televangelist. We've seen the over-drama and the facial expressions in the hearings. I don't think it plays well with real people in this country."
Trump's eldest son then took on Sen. Bob Corker's (R-Tenn.) comment Wednesday that President Trump is becoming a "cult-like" figure for Republicans.
He said Corker's remark is "ridiculous" and that conservatives are "getting things done" since his father was elected.
