What did Eric Trump say about the LGBTQ community?
Eric Trump spoke about the gay community's support for his father's administration on a Tuesday morning appearance on Fox & Friends.
He was asked about a lesbian New Yorker who is a Trump supporter.
“I’m telling you, I see it every day, the LGBT community, they are incredible and you should see how they’ve come out in full force for my father every single day,” he answered.
“I’m part of that community and we love the man and thank you for protecting our neighborhoods and thank you for protecting our cities.”
He later clarified his statement to the New York Post, saying that he was simply trying to paraphrase what LGBT Trump supporters have said about his father.
"To clarify, many of our close friends are part of the LGBT community, which was the intent of my statement — the left has taken that vote for granted for a long time and support from the gay community for my father is incredible," Trump said.
