The United States President Donald Trump claims “great” that a gay Democratic candidate, Pete Buttigieg, is going to contest in 2020 Presidential Election.
Pete Buttigieg is a little known Mayor of South Bend, has raced to fame as one of the top contestants in a crowded Democratic field and also the first major Presidential candidate to be openly “homosexual”.
In a section released of an interview, President Trump claims that “I think it’s absolutely fine, I do.”
“I think it’s great. 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,” added the US President.
Mr. Buttigieg is a married man and if he won the White House, which is still confusing- his husband Chasten would likely to be called the “first gentleman”.
Whether Pete Buttigiegt will seek his party’s nomination or not, his initiative has already made him and his partner, the country’s most popular gay coupe.
Donald Trump’s right-wing base is widely hostile to gay marriage, has conveyed a mixed message over his attitude to gat rights over the coming years.
