‘Yes, I think it’s great’: Trump praises Buttigieg for appearances with husband

Like most married politicians, he frequently appears in public with his husband, Chasten. Suggesting “some people will have a problem” with the relationship on display, Trump made it clear he was not among them.

“I think it’s absolutely fine,” he said. “I do.”

He went on to agree with interviewer Steve Hilton’s assessment.

As Scope News previously reported, Trump has taken aim at Buttigieg in the past — notably based on his appearance, perceived electoral chances, and difficult-to-pronounced surname.
