“Are you gay?” Trump asked Paul Singer, who responded in the negative. Trump then turned to Pence, a devout Christian: “You are not like those guys, that kind of conservative?”


key excerpt:

Donald Trump told Mike Pence that gay people love him, according to a new book by The New York Times' Maggie Haberman.

In Haberman's book, Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America, she detailed Trump's behavior and actions throughout his presidency.

In one particular extract, on page 299, she detailed the conversation Trump had with conservative donor and philanthropist Paul Singer.


Trump allegedly made this statement when Pence attempted to leave the room after Singer revealed that he was in favor of gay rights and had supported them as his son was homosexual.

During the meeting, which took place as Trump, Pence and his aides prepared the president for a press conference, Trump made idle chat with Singer, according to the book.

When asked by Trump "how conservative are you?" Singer allegedly replied that he was quite conservative on economic issues but more moderate on other issues, such as gay rights.


Singer also said he had been involved in efforts to legalize same-sex marriage. Trump allegedly followed up by asking if Singer was gay, to which he replied he wasn't but his son was.

"Pence began to leave. Trump gestured toward the vice president and said 'you're not like those guys, that kind of conservative?'" The extract from the book read.


"[Trump] added, 'the gays, they love me,' noting that the line in his convention speech that received the most applause was a vow to 'protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology"
