Donald Trump says he’d vote for a gay candidate like Pete Buttigieg

Donald Trump said that he would be perfectly willing to vote for a gay candidate for president.

..

Rivera, who said that he’s a friend of Trump several times in the softball interview, asked Trump on his Roadkill with Geraldo podcast yesterday, “Would Americans vote for a gay man to be president?”

..

“I think so,” Trump replied. “I think there would be some that wouldn’t, and you know, I wouldn’t be among that group, to be honest with you.”

..

He said that homophobia “doesn’t seem to be hurting Pete Buttigieg.”

..

“There would certainly be a group, you know this better than I do, there’d be a group that probably wouldn’t, but you and I would not be in that group,” Trump said.

..

“We would not,” Rivera replied.

..

In a June 2019 Reuters/Ipsos poll, 34% of Americans said they would be less likely to vote for a gay candidate. A 2015 Gallup Poll found that 74% of Americans said they would vote for a gay presidential candidate.
