Actor George Takei is claiming a victory, suggesting in a Facebook post that real estate mogul Donald Trump has reversed course on his opposition to gay marriage.

“Friends,” Takei wrote on his Facebook page, “I had lunch with Donald Trump today at the Trump Tower Grill. It was a lively and engaging hour-long conversation that touched upon his personal position on marriage equality. He confided that he recently attended a same-sex wedding and that he'd found it 'beautiful.'”

“I remarked that NY is now a marriage-equality state, and that after that, marriage is better for business! Minds are changing across America, and I am always ready to speak to those ready to listen. I hope my chat with The Don might have some effect on his stance on the subject,” he added.

During Trump's brief flirtation with a run at the White House as a Republican, he said he was opposed to marriage and civil unions for gay couples. Trump said he opposed marriage equality because he doesn't “feel good about it.”

In response, Takei, who is openly gay and married his longtime partner Brad Altman in California before voters approved Proposition 8, invited Trump to lunch to discuss the subject.
