Rep. Mia Love responds to Trump’s taunt in fiery concession speech

After prematurely calling U.S. Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, a losing candidate during post-election remarks earlier this month, President Donald Trump suggested she was unsuccessful because she showed him “no love.”

Subsequent vote tallies found Love reclaim a slim lead against Democratic challenger Ben McAdams, but she ultimately came up short and conceded the race in a speech on Monday.

Love addressed Trump’s remarks as part of her public comments.

“The president’s behavior towards me made me wonder: What did he have to gain by saying such a thing about a fellow Republican?” she asked. “It was not really about asking him to do more, was it? Or was it something else? Well Mr. President, we’ll have to chat about that.”

She said the experience has given her a “clear vision of his world as it is,” suggesting Trump has “no real relationships, just convenient transactions.”

Love called the approach an “insufficient way to implement sincere service and policy.”
