Trump: 2020 rival Buttigieg's same-sex marriage is 'great'

Share

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he thinks “some people” may have an issue with 2020 Democratic rival Pete Buttigieg’s (BOO’-tuh-juhjehz) same-sex marriage, but he thinks “it’s great.”

Trump tells Fox News Channel’s “The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton” in an interview airing Sunday that “I think it’s absolutely fine” that Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten, are open about their relationship on the campaign trail.

Trump agreed with Hilton that Buttigieg’s candidacy is a sign of progress for the country. He says, “I think that’s something that perhaps some people will have a problem with. I have no problem with it whatsoever. I think it’s good.”

During his 2016 campaign, Trump suggested he’d appoint conservative justices to overturn a Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage. But he called the issue “settled” shortly after his election.
