Trump has campaigned against O'Rourke when he went to Texas in support of Ted Cruz.
On Thursday, President Donald Trump was asked by the press to react to Democrat Robert "Beto" O'Rourke's 2020 presidential bid announcement. And in true Trump-fashion, the president, known for mercilessly branding his opponents, mocked the media-beloved O'Rourke for his excessive "hand movement," the likes of which Trump said he's "never seen" before.
"Well I think he's got a lot of hand movement; I've never seen so much hand movement," Trump told reporters during an Oval Office meeting alongside Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.
"I said, 'Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?' So I've never seen hand movement – I watched him a little while this morning – doing I assume it was some kind of a news conference," the president continued.
It's unclear where the laughter heard in the video is coming from, but it seems some in the media laughed at Trump's comical remarks.
