Trump’s interview with ABC News came just days ahead of his private meeting in New York today with approximately 1,000 evangelical leaders –- some of whom are sure to disagree with Trump on one or both of the ideas.
“I would look into it,” Trump said in an interview on Friday when asked if he’d continue declaring June as LGBT Pride Month, as President Obama has done.
“I’m better for women and I’m better for gays. I am better for a lot of people and I think people are starting to see that,” Trump said.
Trump also indicated to Karl that he’d be open to continuing the tradition of hosting an Iftar dinner in celebration of the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, as both President Obama and Bush have done.
“It wouldn’t bother me. It wouldn’t bother me,” Trump said. “It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought to but it wouldn’t bother me.”
