Trump Hopes to Reverse Marriage Equality as President


Donald Trump hasn't yet focused on LGBT issues in his divisive campaign for president, but that changed this weekend when he said he'd move to set the clock back on marriage equality.

"[Marriage equality] 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 things, but they have a long way to go," he told Fox News on Sunday. "I disagree with the court in that it should have been a states' rights issue."

Trump, widely expected to win Monday's Iowa caucus, has previously stated his opposition to marriage equality, though this is his first time indicating he will take action to reverse it. As the Human Rights Campaign points out, marriage isn't quite sacred to the New York businessman; he's been wed three times.
