Democratic 2020 hopeful Pete Buttigieg says he doesn't believe he would be the first gay president if he is elected.

The South Bend mayor is often cited as being the first openly gay presidential candidate in the United States.

However, Buttigieg claims that he's "almost certain" that past presidents were also gay.

According to Buttigieg, statistics suggest that we've already had more than one secretly gay president.

The young Democrat held back at naming those presidents he imagined were homosexual.

“I would imagine we’ve probably had excellent presidents who were gay — we just didn’t know which ones,” he told “Axios on HBO.”

“I mean, statistically, it’s almost certain.”

Asked if he possibly knew which commander-in-chief wasn’t straight, the Democratic hopeful said:

“My gaydar even doesn’t work that well in the present, let alone retroactively.

"But one can only assume that’s the case.”

According to the New York Post, Buttigieg — who is mayor of South Bend, Ind. — has been rising in the polls as of late.

He would be the first openly gay presidential candidate if nominated next year.

The 37-year-old has been asked in the past about the possibility of there ever being a gay president, with BuzzFeed posing the question back in March.

“My gaydar is not great to begin with and definitely doesn’t work over long stretches of time,” he repeated.

“I think we’ll just have to let the historians figure that out.”
