After appearing to come out in a television interview Tuesday morning, President Trump 's son Eric said he is not "part of" the LGBT community.

Eric Trump said on the Fox News morning show, “The LGBT community, they are incredible. And you should see how they come out in full force for my father every single day. I’m part of that community, and we love the man”

Hours before his father’s first debate with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, a friend of the Trump family told The Post that “he misspoke” while appearing to say he was “part of that community”

It all began when on "Fox & Friends" Eric Trump was questioned about a lesbian New Yorker who supports the president.

“I’m telling you, I see it every day, the LGBT community, they are incredible and you should see how they’ve come out in full force for my father every single day. I’m part of that community and we love the man and thank you for protecting our neighborhoods and thank you for protecting our cities,” Trump said.

President Donald Trump later told The Post that he was actually attempting to paraphrase what LGBT supporters said about his dad. “To clarify, many of our close friends are part of the LGBT community, which was the intent of my statement — the left has taken that vote for granted for a long time and support from the gay community for my father is incredible,” Trump said.

Trump has been married to Trump campaign advisor, Lara Trump, since 2014. He claimed to be attempting to quote an anonymous member of the Trump-supporting LGBT community to many audiences, but his misspeak nonetheless received many online responses from that community.

Nevertheless, the mistaken wording sent users of Twitter into a frenzy. Many replied to Takei with jokes about the statement of President Trump and possible misunderstanding of the LGBTQ community as a whole. Others have taken offence at Trump's initial statement. It led to a ferocious debate on Twitter, hardly surprising given the subject matter and the players involved.
