President Donald Trump's son, Eric Trump shocked the world when he apparently came out as "part of the LGBT community".

No one was prepared for the stunning revelation when Eric came out during an appearance on "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday morning.

"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," Eric said.

Some believe Eric was simply quoting what others say to him.

The LGBT community was sent reeling after Eric dropped a bombshell on Fox News. Some suggested that Eric made a Freudian slip -- something he was thinking but he never meant to say out loud.

Eric Trump is married to wife, Lara, since 2014. They share two children - a son, Eric Luke, 3, and daughter Carolina, 13 months.

LGBT journalist Erica Lenti was not impressed: "the gay committee, have had an emergency meeting and we have rejected Eric Trump's application."

And LGBT singer Simon Curtis said, "Eric Trump coming out on Fox News is not what I expected from the timeline this morning."

Eric, a 36-year-old Capricorn, was raised in a loving, two-parent household with his siblings Ivanka, 38, and Donald Jr., 42. He also has a half-sister, Tiffany, 26, and a 14-year-old brother, Barron Trump.

Update:

Eric Trump clarified that he is not "part of the LGBT community".

Eric told The NY Post he was paraphrasing what LGBT Trump supporters told him about his father.

"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."
