Gatsby believed that Daisy was afraid of Tom, that he intimidated and bullied her. Gatsby firmly believed that she didn't know what she was saying.

“I don’t think she ever loved him.” Gatsby turned around from a window and looked at me challengingly. “You must remember, old sport, she was very excited this afternoon. He told her those things in a way that frightened her — that made it look as if I was some kind of cheap sharper. And the result was she hardly knew what she was saying.”
