Possible Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump went on Greta Van Susteren’s Fox News program Monday night and discussed some of his political beliefs.

“I’m a very conservative person, I’m very big into the military,” he told Van Susteren. “I’m a great guy for defense.”

“I am probably as conservative as anybody on your show, and that’s going a pretty strong step. I’m a Republican, I’m a very conservative Republican. I believe strongly in just about all conservative principles.”

When pressed on social issues, Trump reiterated that he is pro-life. But when asked about gay marriage, Trump hesitated.

“No, you know, I’m just not in favor of gay marriage,” he said. “I live in New York. New York is a place with lots of gays, and I think it’s great, but I’m not in favor of gay marriage.”

Trump, who looks increasingly likely to make a run for the White House, has also advocated a 25 percent tariff on all imported Chinese goods.

    TRUMP AND OTHER ISRAELISTS, SUCH AS MC-CAIN, LEIBERMAN, AND CANTOR PURGED BY LEADERS OF THE TEA PARTIES
    Israel and its supporting diaspora, now led by “Satanyahu”, are desperately struggling to perpetuate their notorious robbing and killing of the Palestinians, their political extortion of economic and military aid from the American People, and their warmongering against their Arab and Iranian neighbors – but the Tea Parties are patriotically purging these Israelist NeoCon/NeoLib minorities from all branches of their government.

      @Jeugenen: Why dont you take your Nazi drivel over to Huffington Post with the rest of the Sturmabteilung who hates Jews? Your not a tea party activist, you are a liberal blogger who is a shadow racist (like Barack Obama), or what my father used to call, “a sweet smelling Klansman like David Duke.”

      Take your pro-Obama, anti-Israel, bigoted, racist liberal hatred elsewhere.

    If Donald Trump is against marriage equality for gay and lesbian citizens, why is the gay conservative group, GOProud, pushing him to run for President?

    What a fraud!
    It surprises me the GOP is willing to go along this charade… The guy is obviously mocking you all :D

    I am a *certified* homosexual. I live in Dallas with my partner and have been ‘out’ for nearly 20 years. And I am *AGAINST* gay marriage. I always have been.

    What those of you who are str8 dont realize or understand is that the gay campaign FOR gay marriage is a direct assault on the institution OF marriage; gay men who want to marry make up 0.0000001% of gay men on earth. ITS A NON ISSUE.

    Its now an issue because the Marxist, anti-American, anti-Family, anti-Christian state run media have made it an issue … and str8′s have caved in everywhere, except for the social conservatives.

    Look people: there are THOUSANDS of gay men like me who are not for gay marriage; you simply will not hear from us because the gay fascist press has a LOCK on free speech in the gay community (thank heavens for the new media and Daily Caller where gay conservatives can speak out).

    Marriage is an institution to RAISE CHILDREN and maintain the SOCIAL STRUCTURE of this nation. I am for that. Strong marriages, strong social structure bodes well for gay men who live within a strict, established, religious social structure.

      Thanks for giving your opinion. I would have assumed that most gays were for gay marriage but perhaps that is not so. Either way, I’m glad that the Trump spoke his mind without regard to the thought police that are keeping so many people in fear of speaking their mind.

      • mdiavaro99ro

        What mind did he speak? He didn’t say a damn thing and took a long time to do so :D.

        @mapletree: Your welcome.

        There are *thousands* of us FAR right wing gays out there. Were more conservative than Republicans, libertarians and others who are lumped in with the term ‘right wing.’ My partner calls me a Right Wing Fascist and I wear that proudly on my sleeve even if the metaphor is severe.

        What drew me to Trump was not gay marriage but his ability to stabilize the trading relationship with China where we are getting reamed (with Obama’s blessing). I am glad he spoke out against gay marriage because he will NOT be cowed by the cocktail-swilling, cocaine-sniffing elites who will tell you after four martini’s they are actually FOR gay marriage because, “well my cousin in gay and I love him.”

        Stand firm.

        RE: Marriage. If you are straight (and most of you are that read this), you had BETTER get in gear and (a.) get to the polls and vote in conservatives who stand for marriage and (b.) join the culture war fight against the Gay Left in this country. Bill O’Reilly is doing a great job in this.

        As a gay man, I stand not only opposed to what *most* of the gay left stands for (it is anti-American, HETEROphobic, anti-Christian) but beleive that str8′s must stand firm and fight the 0.000001% who are making policy on Capitol Hill. Its the classic charge of the mosquito.

        Stand against liberal racism, liberal bigotry, liberal hatred.
        Stand up for traditional marriage and the family unit.
        Let your voice be heard when you go to the polls.
        Gay marriage = HETEROphobia.

          Total bullsh!t. I think you’re either fake or disturbed, probably both.

    You know, I’m just not in favor of Donald Trump. I like New York. New York is a place with lots of moguls like Donald Trump, and I think it’s great, but I’m not in favor of Donald Trump.
