Which in itself, would be an overturn of federal law, which it sounds like now he's not likely to do.I remember him saying he might consider appointing gay marriage decisions to the state level, but that was it.
like most rump positions there's a good 5-6 often contradictory positions you can pick from, butWhen did he ever say anything negative towards gay marriage? I remember him saying he might consider appointing gay marriage decisions to the state level, but that was it.
By no means am i defending him, i am curious as to what you are referring to.
other times he's aid he's "evolving"In a March 2011 interview with The Des Moines Register, Trump said gay couples should not be allowed to marry or receive the same benefits as married heterosexual couples.
i think people looked at his choice for VP as an indication he was against it, for one thing. I'm also thinking I heard him express doubts about it at one point early on, but he has reversed himself on several issues, so I could be wrong.
I think he took the angle of picking the worst VP candidate he could find so he doesn't have to worry about assassination.Which in itself, would be an overturn of federal law, which it sounds like now he's not likely to do.
But honestly, if I were LGBT I'd probably view Pence as a bigger threat than Trump. Here's a man who advocated for federal funding on "conversion therapy" and passed discriminatory laws against LGBT people.
Idk about tea party types, but there's a pretty large contingent that cares deeply about gay marriage. Evangelicals and other right leaning folks. That was huge several years ago. We heard all about "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve". And being "forced" to bake a wedding cake. That was the impetus for Pence's infamous "religious freedom" bill in Indiana.You realize most of the tea party type republicans didn't care about Gay marriage one way or the other.
