Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Friday couldn’t remember the name of a CNN reporter who had praised him, but he did remember her “beautiful red dress” and knew that she “looked good.”

The GOP frontrunner was talking by phone with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and said he was proud that a CNN reporter had called his speech on Thursday in South Carolina the “greatest political speech she’s ever heard.”

Asked which reporter said it, Trump confessed he couldn’t remember.

“I don’t know her name, but she was wearing a beautiful red dress. She looked good to me,” Trump told MSNBC.

He was won over by the compliment.

“Anybody that says that looks good to me,” Trump said.
