Trump says he’s impressed by German shepherds and their ability to sniff out illicit drugs, but doesn’t see himself getting a dog while at the White House.

Trump says he wouldn’t mind having a dog, but he doesn’t have the time.

He asked the crowd, “How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn?” The crowd laughed loudly in response.

He then shook off the thought, saying, “It feels a little phony to me.”

He noted that some people have told him it would be good politically to have a dog. He ended up not buying that one though, saying, “That’s not the relationship I have with my people.”
