Shaking hands and kissing babies is part of the political process, but when Donald Trump saw a toddler dressed like the GOP candidate on Monday, he gave the audience double vision by bringing his “mini me” to the stage during a rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
“Look at that guy over there!” Trump said, WNEP16 Scranton reported.
“Bring him up!” the crowd chanted.
The toddler was dressed in a business suit, a comb-over wig and a pin that said “vote.” After staffers passed the boy to the stage, Trump gave the audience a glimpse of Trump the grandfather.
“Now he is supposed to look like Donald Trump but he’s actually much too good looking. You are really handsome,” Trump said, according to 6ABC.
“Are you having a good time tonight?” Trump asked the child, 6ABC reported. “Night,” the child repeated.
“Where is your daddy and your mommy right? Do you want to go back to them or do you want to stay with Donald Trump?” Trump asked the toddler.
The toddler said “Trump!” into the microphone and the crowd went wild.
Trump’s interactions with children on the campaign trail haven’t always gone as well as Monday’s mini Trump exchange. In August, a baby was crying at a Trump rally in Virginia.
“I love babies. I hear that baby cry, I like it,” Trump said,CNN reported. “What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry. The mom’s running around, like, don’t worry about it, you know. It’s young and beautiful and healthy and that’s what we want.”
A few minutes later, Trump explained his previous comment was sarcasm.
“Actually I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here,” he said. “I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking. That’s OK. People don’t understand. That’s OK.”
