Trump Would “Consider” Reversing Same-Sex Marriage In US
Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has told Fox News that he would “strongly consider” the reversal of same-sex marriage in the US.
If made President of the USA, Donald Trump said he would “strongly consider” reversing the landmark ruling which extends marriage to same-sex couples across all fifty states of the US, despite saying last year that the issue was a “dead issue”.
He was being interviewed by Chris Wallace on the Fox News Sunday programme.
When asked whether he would appoint new justices to overturn the ruling Trump replied,
“I would strongly consider that, yes.”
Last summer when questioned about whether he would pass an amendment to the law, Trump said that he would not oppose the law, saying,
“Some people have hopes of passing amendments, but it’s not going to happen… Anybody that’s making that an issue is doing it for political reasons. The Supreme Court ruled on it”
Up until this point Trump was the only Republican candidate who did not oppose same-sex marriage.
