Dan Goldman, a counsel for Democrats at Donald Trump’s impeachment trial who is now vying for a House seat in New York’s 10th Congressional District, received a surprise on Wednesday: an endorsement from Donald Trump.

The campaign for Goldman -- who has never held elected office and has spent millions on his own campaign -- immediately responded with a statement disavowing the endorsement as a “pathetic attempt at fooling Democrats” and saying that Trump was “pretending to endorse Goldman.”
