President Donald Trump responds to tweet about Andrew Yang

Trump responded to someone responding about Trump and Yang.

Democratic presidential candidate businessman Andrew Yang greets supporters before the New Hampshire state Democratic Party convention, Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019, in Manchester, N.H.

President Donald Trump reacted to a tweet referencing Andrew Yang over the weekend.

Kassy Dillon, who created the website Lone Conservative, tweeted Friday her reasoning on why she would vote for Trump over Yang.

“Here’s the thing: I’m voting for Trump but I wouldn’t be friends with Trump. I’m not voting for Yang but I’d definitely be his friend.”

And Trump liked the idea.

“I’m OK with that!” he tweeted.

Dillon told “Fox & Friends” that she appreciates what the Trump administration has done.

“Results are more important than rhetoric. ... While I don’t like some things he tweets or says, I do want to vote for him,” she said, according to Fox News.

Andrew Yang and Trump have had a bit of an interesting relationship over the last few weeks. The hashtag #YangBeatsTrump trended on Twitter, too. A lot of the hype around this came after an Emerson College poll found Trump trails Yang by 8 percentage points in New Hampshire.

“According to recent polls, I’m one of only two candidates in the Democratic field that is drawing support from 10% or more of Trump voters. That means if I’m the nominee we win. That’s just the #math,” Yang tweeted.
