Trump Attacks Same-Sex Marriage, Would Make It A Priority To Reverse Marriage Equality

A day ahead of the Iowa caucus, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has finally played the anti-same-sex marriage card in a last minute appeal to court conservative voters in Iowa.

The real estate mogul said Sunday that he would very strongly work to reverse the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage and hopes that it could be changed once he becomes president.

“It has been ruled upon. It has been there. If I’m elected I would be very strong in putting certain judges on the bench that maybe could change thing, but they have a long way to go,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I disagree with the court in that it should have been a states’ rights issue.”

A Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll showed Trump leading the race by 5 percentage points.

“I’m probably more honored when I hear that stat than when I see I’m winning the poll,” Trump said about the level of evangelical support he’s gotten in the state of Iowa.

Back in June of 2015, Trump didn’t have much of an answer when CNN’s Jake Tapper pressed him about how he squares his own marriage history with his opposition to same-sex marriage.

“What do you say to a lesbian who’s married, or a gay man who is married, who says, ‘Donald Trump, what’s traditional about being married three times?’” Tapper asked.

He blamed his divorces on the fact that he worked too much, even though his two previous wives “were very good” and he is currently in “a great marriage.”

“I blame myself because my business was so powerful for me,” Trump said. “I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.”

Tapper pressed him again for an answer: “I really don’t say anything,” Trump said. “I am just, Jake, I’m for traditional marriage.”
