He’s not a traditional President, in many ways, and that includes NOT owning a pet, but that’s not to say he doesn’t LIKE dogs, he does.
He’s the first President since McKinley not to own a dog.
In his rally speech in El Paso, President Trump talked about the kind of dogs he likes. Is it really any surprise, that Trump favors the working dogs, like German Shepherds.
At one point in the speech, he spoke warmly of just how fantastic the German Shepherds are at locating drugs. That led him to talking about Presidential dog ownership generally.
Here’s a short version of the clip in question where his interaction with the guy from the crowd isn’t cut off:
WATCH: "How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn?" Pres. Trump says, explaining to supporters at an El Paso, Texas rally why he is the first U.S. president in over a century to not own a four-legged pal https://t.co/O9qv7OlRsu pic.twitter.com/v9TPHoe2Io

Here is a longer one where it is cut off, if you’d like to hear what he has to say about the German Sheperds.
If you watch how he lights up while telling that story in the second clip, it’s easy to take him at his word that he really DOES like these dogs.
“I wouldn’t mind having one, honestly, but I don’t have any time,” Trump said at a campaign rally in El Paso, Texas, after he described watching a shepherd sniff out drugs hidden in a box.
The crowd cheered its approval after he asked, “How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn?”
The president shook his head and said “I don’t know … I don’t feel good. Feels a little phony, phony to me” as he motioned disapproval with his hand.
Trump said “a lot of people” have told him he should get a dog because “it’s good politically.”
“I said, ‘Look, that’s not the relationship I have with my people,’” he said.
Time broke the transcript off right at that line, and changed direction in the story to the kind of dogs Obama had. Here’s what they left out:
After Trump said it seems phony, and that he was told it was ‘good politically’, someone from the crowd called out something about “Obama”. (We can’t quite make it out. Going by context, maybe ‘Phony like Obama’? The audio just before he says “Obama” isn’t clear.)
Trump responded, laughing and pointing into the crowd, “Yeah, Obama had a dog, you’re right.”
Trump thinks it’s ‘Good Politically, but kind of phony.’
And Obama had not one, but two dogs.
As for the ‘phony and political’ part?
Let’s take a moment and remember what Obama NAMED that dog, shall we?
We’re told it was named “BO” after Bo Diddly. That may be true, but with Barack’s conspicious use of the words “I”, “Me” and “Mine” in speeches, and the President who called a political movement ‘Generation 44’ after himself, is there any wonder that many have speculated wither he named it after his own initials?
