'I like this kid!': Trump greeted a teen in Salt Lake City who was dressed up like him — orange makeup and all

  • Two teens at the Salt Lake City airport dressed up as President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
  • "I like this kid, I like this kid!" Trump said about the boy dressed as him, who was wearing orange face paint as part of the costume.

When President Donald Trump flew into Salt Lake City airport aboard Air Force One on Monday morning, he was greeted on the tarmac by a dedicated pair of impersonators.

Two teenagers came out to see Trump in costume, with one dressed up as the president and the other as Vice President Mike Pence. They were decked out in full suits, wigs, and — in the case of the mini-Trump — a full face of orange makeup.

"I like this kid, I like this kid!" Trump said according to the White House pool report, pointing to the boy dressed as him as he walked down the ropeline with shaking people's hands. The boy dressed as Pence.

Alongside the boys were a number of other supporters cheering and taking photos.

Further down the president's route, demonstrators protested Trump's intent to shrink several national monuments in Utah. They held signs that read, "Protect Wild Utah," and "Dump Trump."

After giving a speech at the Utah State Capitol Monday afternoon, Trump signed two executive orders, making the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments smaller, and turning them into five separate monuments.
