After voting for himself, Trump stops to chat with reporters in Palm Beach

Former President Donald Trump spoke to reporters after voting in Tuesday’s presidential preference primary election.

Accompanied by his wife Melania Trump, the 45th U.S. president cast his ballot at the Morton and Barbara Mandel Recreation Center in Palm Beach, just a few miles from his home at Mar-a-Lago.

Wearing his Palm Beach County-issued “My Vote Counts” sticker, Trump spent a few minutes chatting with reporters about a variety of issues, including former Vice President Mike Pence and whether he intends to pardon former Trump adviser Peter Navarro, who reported to federal prison hours earlier to serve a four-month sentence for refusing to comply with a subpoena from the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Trump called Navarro “a great patriot” who was treated “very badly” by President Joe Biden’s administration.

The presumptive Republican nominee was also asked what he thought about Pence’s refusal to endorse Trump.

“I couldn’t care less,” Trump said.

Trump was also asked who he voted for in the election. His answer was hardly a surprise.

“I voted for Donald Trump,” he said, cupping his hands over his mouth to project his answer as he walked away.
