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.
