Gaetz knew precisely. Though he came from the more conservative Florida Panhandle, the young congressman shared Trump’s taste for boasts, particularly about sexual exploits, and a knack for self-promotion.

Gaetz’s father, Don Gaetz, was the president of the Florida Senate and a wealthy businessman, and Trump’s father was a successful real estate developer in New York.
