Real estate mogul and possible Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently appeared on the 700 Club in a taped interview segment. Trump discussed “radical” Islam, abortion and of course, his opposition to same-sex marriage.
Touting his conservatism, Trump claims to be pro-life and oppose same-sex marriage in the interview, which appears on the Christian Broadcasting Network.
Explaining his stance on same-sex marriage, Trump acknowledges his position is not popular with his fellow New Yorkers:
“First of all, I live in New York. I know many, many gay people. Tremendous people. And to be honest with you, as far as civil unions are concerned, I haven't totally formed my opinion," Trump says in the interview. “But there can be no discrimination against gays. I'm against gay marriage, I took a lot of heat for that.”
It seems a little odd that Trump would say that gays shouldn't be discriminated against but he is against same-sex marriage in the same breath. Then again, he's saying whatever it is that will get him favorable attention, especially from the conservative base.
Trump has made clear that he would be no friend of the LGBT rights movement if he actually becomes our next president.
