“He really shocked me because I thought he was my dog.
That’s the biggest shock,” the president said.
“I mean, you don’t know what’s going to happen in a day or two.”
Trump is not alone in his confusion.
Pet owners have been flocking to the White House to be pets of the day, and one of the first events was a White House pet-care event that brought together dozens of pets, many of them small furry ones, as well as a handful of senior citizens.
A few days later, he invited a pet-shopping buddy to the Oval Office to show him how to do it himself.
The next day, he was in the White Tower for a meeting with a senior adviser to his cabinet.
In a recent interview with Fox News, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Trump had “never before, and will never again” have pets on his staff.
“He’s never been in a situation where a pet has been there for him,” Sanders said.
Sanders said the president is a “natural,” but added that the pet-sitting session at the Oval was a “very unusual” one.
“In his first 100 days, he’s had about a dozen meetings with pet owners,” Sanders added.
But pet owners like Pete Greene, who has a 10-year-old cat named Tiki, say the president has been too busy lately to even visit with them.
“There’s so many of us, there’s so much stress, so many distractions, there are so many things that can happen that you can’t just have pets and just sit around and talk,” Greene said.
Pet ownership is becoming an issue in the 2016 election cycle.
While many candidates supported the repeal of President Barack Obama’s pet-napping ban in 2009, some Republicans have taken the issue to heart.
Trump has said he would like to see pet owners “banned from the White Houses,” though he hasn’t made a final decision on the matter.
A spokesman for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment about whether the president will reconsider his pet-banned policy.
The cat and dog-sitters in the Oval are not the only people to have had a pet at the White, and they are not alone.
On a recent day, several family members were waiting to meet the president outside the White to talk about their dog, which is a pit bull named Dottie.
Greene’s dog is a mix of Dotties and a terrier mix named Paws.
A picture of the dog on the White website shows Dotty sitting next to Paws, with the caption, “Dottie’s the one I love the most.”
In addition to having a dog on staff, Greene is the owner of two other pets, a puppy and a puppy mix named Tango.
Tango, which he is keeping for himself, was raised by a woman who has since passed away, and Greene hopes to breed him with Tango so he can have two dogs.
“She loved Tango,” Greenet says.
“Dunn and I are not too close.
We just got together to have dinner together, but we’re not too sure of the genetics of the two dogs.”
For Tango and Paws Greene had his first pet, a little pink tabby named Ruby, when he was a child in Florida.
“Ruby was very shy,” Greenee said.
He gave her to a friend, who had to let her go to college.
Greenee says he was not aware of the fact that the cat was his until recently.
“You never knew.
She just wanted to be a cat.
She loved to run, and she loved to sit.
She’s like my family, so I was really happy for her,” Greener said.
The White House has a history of pet-related events.
In 2007, President George W. Bush was in his office and his chief of staff, Jack Quinn, invited the White house’s pet owner to a White Senate event.
Quinn says he and his staff have a “lot of fun” with the president’s pets.
“We’ll do everything in our power to keep the president away from our dogs,” he said at the time.
A year later, President Obama’s chief of security, Ben Rhodes, invited a few pet owners and his family to the South Lawn.
“A lot of people think this is just an old, old tradition, but in fact, we’ve done this a few times before,” Rhodes said.
On Friday, the president invited a dog-sitter and her family to an event in the Roosevelt Room.
Trump did invite a pet in 2013, when his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, invited several pet owners from across the country to the West Wing to talk strategy.
The president’s chief strategist at the same time was
