Concern was sparked when Trump said that he would “consider” the repeal of the legislation during an interview with Fox News during his presidential campaign.
However, seeming to calm some concerns, the President-elect said during his CBS 60 Minutes interview, that gay marriage was “fine” with him and the courts had decided to rule in favour of same-sex marriage and it was “done”.
“it’s done,” adding “these cases have gone to the Supreme Court, they’ve been decided. And I’m fine with that,” adding that his views on the subject are “irrelevant.”
Trump has in the past said that he does not believe that gay people should be discriminated against, but that he was against gay marriage.
