US President Donald Trump revealed in a Thursday interview that he would be open to voting for a gay candidate for president.
Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera asked Trump on an episode of his podcast released Thursday if Americans would “vote for a gay man to be president.”
“I think so,” Trump said. “I think there would be some that wouldn’t, and I wouldn’t be among that group, to be honest with you.”
Seventy-six percent of Americans said they would vote for a gay or lesbian candidate for president in a 2019 Gallup poll. Among Democrats, 83 percent said they would vote for a gay or lesbian candidate, as well as 61 percent of Republicans and 82 percent of independents, as reported by The Hill.
