Senator Cory Booker is responding to Donald Trump’s cryptic tweet following his DNC speech last night. Find out how he responded to Donald’s political petty inside….
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker took the stage to deliver his speech to kick off the first day of the Democratic National Convention held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia last night.
Following his speech on love and equality, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump hit up Twitter to critique the Senator in a cryptic message.
If Cory Booker is the future of the Democratic Party, they have no future! I know more about Cory than he knows about himself.

It’s unclear exactly what Trump was referring to, but the New Jersey Senator issued a response to his comment.
During an interview on CNN's New Day, the 47-year-old junior senator had the perfect response to Trump’s political petty.
“I’m gonna answer with love,” he said. “Let me tell you right now: I love Donald Trump. I don't want to answer his hate with hate. I’m going to answer it with love. I’m not going to answer his darkness with darkness. I love him. I know his kids, I know his family. They're good, the children especially, good people.”
In fact, Mr. Booker had nothing bad to say about Trump. He showered Trump with praises and love proving he can be the bigger person in the situation. He continued,
“I don’t care. I love you, Donald. I pray for you. I hope that you find some kindness in your heart, that you’re not going to be somebody that spews out insults to your political opposition, that you’re going to start finding some ways to love. I’m going to elevate him. I love you, I just don't want you to be my president. I don't want to you have the White House to be spewing that kind of mean-spirited hate that doesn’t even belong on a playground sandbox.”
Kill ‘em with kindness. Love Trumps Hate.
