Rep. Mia Love Tells 'The View' That She Was 'Targeted by Democrats' for Being a Black Republican

Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) caught up with “The View” Friday to talk about her recent midterm loss and President Trump’s criticism of her.

President Trump predicted Love’s loss in a speech calling out GOP candidates who distanced themselves from him in the midterms.

“Mia Love gave me no love and she lost,” Trump said at the time. “Too bad. Sorry about that, Mia.”

In her concession speech, Love argued that the GOP had a problem with minorities.

"You see, we feel like politicians claim they know what's best for us from a safe distance, yet they're never willing to take us home,” she said, “because Republicans never take minority communities into their home and citizens into their homes and into their hearts, they stay with Democrats and bureaucrats in Washington because they do take them home -- or at least make them feel like they have a home."

‘View’ co-host Sunny Hostin asked Love why it was a “surprise” to her that Republicans had trouble embracing minorities.

“I just ask you, as a black Republican,” Hostin said, “that doesn’t make a lot of sense to me when you have a Republican Party that’s, you know, supporting a president who was a birther, Central Park Five, DOJ settlement not letting black people rent.”

“We’re not going to let Democrats off the hook because I was targeted by Democrats,” Love told Hostin in reply.

She claimed she was targeted by Democrats for being a black Republican woman.

“They targeted me because I was a — because I am a black female Republican. And they replaced me with a middle-aged white male in the state of Utah,” she said.

“Well, the voters did,” Hostin pointed out.

“Well, there was a whole lot of money in an R-plus-13 district that wanted to take me out. Look at Carlos Curbelo,” Love countered. “They tried to get rid of every single diversity they possibly could. For me, diversity on the left side is good for them if you think the same way they do.”

Co-host Ana Navarro disputed Love’s characterization.

“I don’t agree with that. Carlos got replaced by a woman, first Ecuadorian to serve,” she said, “it’s politics I think it’s about the numbers, they wanted a majority.”
