Donald Trump Jr., the son of real estate mogul and gay marriage opponent Donald Trump, has come out in support of marriage equality.

The 34-year-old Trump Jr. is the child of Trump and first wife Ivana Trump. He currently serves as the executive vice president of The Trump Organization.

When asked by The Six Pack co-hosts DJ Ben Harvey and comedian Dave Rubin whether he is in favor of gay nuptials, Trump Jr. answered: “I'm totally for it. One of my best friends growing up was gay. It's never been an issue for me.”

“I think there was a time in my life, probably in college, that I wished every guy was gay because it meant more women for me! I don't know what everyone's problem with it is. I wish everyone was gay! That's the way I thought about it. I have no issue with it.”

“If I have to suffer through marriage, why shouldn't they?” he asked.

Trump Jr. also confirmed that his father had met with George Takei to discuss the issue.

“In terms of my father's political views in the grand scheme of things there's other things he'd be concerned about first, given the state of the world and our economy,” Trump Jr. said. “I think part of it, and perhaps the shame of being a conservative, is you almost have to have those kind of stances to win any kind of primary. And then you have to sell out and become a moderate in the middle just like you have to do if you're on the liberal side of the political spectrum.”
