The presidential candidate, rumor has it, is considering naming the openly gay tech executive to the country's highest legal authority. 

Donald Trump made headlines again recently after sources hinted that Peter Thiel could be his pick for the the Supreme Court.

If Thiel were appointed, he would become the first openly gay justice to serve on the country's highest court.

Trump "deeply loves Peter Thiel," a separate source close to Trump told The Huffington Post.

Officials for both Trump and Thiel have denied the claims.

"Peter hasn't had any conversations about a Supreme Court nomination and has no interest in the job," said Jeremiah Hill, one of Thiel's representatives.

Thiel worked at a law firm in New York City for seven months after completing law school at Stanford but has no clear legal experience beyond that.

Thiel, the founder of PayPal, spoke this year at the Republican National Convention. During his speech, he said: "I am proud to be gay. I am proud to be a Republican. But most of all I am proud to be an American."
