Donald Trump gave a brief look into how he entertains guests at his Mar-a-Lago club on Wednesday, revealing that the ‘gay national anthem’ YMCA by the Village People is always a hit at the Florida retreat.

The former president discussed his new gig as a disc jockey regaling Mar-a-Lago members on Friday and Saturday nights — and revealed his personal affinity for Broadway show tunes.

He bragged about his ‘high aptitude’ for music during a wide-ranging interview with the Full Send podcast, while revealing he’s also hands-off when it comes to scratching records and remixing sounds.

‘I pick the ones I like. I don’t want to spin, I want to pick the ones I like,’ Trump said of his DJing style. 

Asked if he had any particular favorites, the ex-president pointed to the 1978 hit YMCA.

‘You know what gets ’em rocking? YMCA,’ Trump said.

‘YMCA — the gay national anthem. Did you ever hear that? The gay national anthem.’

Trump has already been known to play the classic disco track at his rallies, where he would often move a bit to the beat himself. Another well-known Village People song, Macho Man, has also featured at the ex-president’s events.

But though he’s still hosting rallies — including one coming up on Saturday in Florence, South Carolina — Trump’s more often playing music at Mar-a-Lago, where it was revealed last month he’d given himself an entertainment role. 

A February 2 memo to guests reads, ‘Great music will be played during dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings, with President Trump playing the role of disc jockey.’

‘The music will be amazing, it will be lots of fun, and will go until the late evening,’ the message obtained by the New York Times stated.

Trump said on Wednesday that he had ‘a lot of good selections’ and ‘people love it when I do it.’

At one point he disputed one of the Full Send hosts’ assertion that the chart-topping retro hit was ‘underrated.’

‘Well it gets a lot of views, I can say,’ Trump challenged.

He also revealed his love of Broadway music, naming The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables as two of his favorite productions.

Other points of the interview took on a much more serious tone, such as when the former president condemned his successor Joe Biden for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. 

Trump said on Wednesday that he has not spoken to Putin since leaving office but that the Russian autocrat ‘spoke’ to Trump about invading Ukraine.

The ex-president caught criticism last week for praising Putin’s invasion as ‘genius.’

He told Full Send the autocrat would have ‘never’ invaded Ukraine when he was president. 

‘I haven’t spoken to him since, but he was never, ever going to, certainly under the Trump administration — and I say zero chance, I don’t say like, I don’t think, zero chance he would have done it. And I spoke to him about it, zero chance he would have done it,’ Trump claimed. 

‘He saw the weakness, he saw Afghanistan, that — the way, the incompetence of the withdrawal, the way they did it was so bad.’

Trump went on to say Putin ‘became a different man’ when he saw the US military withdrawal from Afghanistan at the end of August last year.

‘He viewed the United States differently, he no longer respected the United States,’ Trump said.

Asked if he would look to challenge Biden in 2024, Trump was as cagey as always — but dropped yet another hint that he could seek re-election.

‘The campaign finance laws don’t really allow you to discuss that unless you’re going to literally go through a different process,’ Trump answered.

Campaign finance laws are in place for candidates to disclose the dollars they use during an election cycle to promote transparency. It’s unclear what specific law or ‘different process’ the ex-president was referring to. 

He continued, ‘So I think a lot of people are going to be really happy. You guys might be really happy.’

‘I think a lot of people are going to be really happy,’ Trump said. ‘I’ll wait til — I have so many people wanting me to do it. I think, really, that a lot of people are going to be very happy.’
