–Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. He went on to disparage June’s landmark Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage.
“I don’t like the way they ruled. I disagree with the Supreme Court from the standpoint that it should be a states’ rights issue and that’s the way it should have been ruled on, not the way they did it. This was a very surprising ruling. And I can see changes coming down the line, frankly. But I would have much preferred that they ruled at a state level and allowed the states to make those rulings themselves.”
Wallace followed up by asking Trump point-blank if he would appoint justices to overrule the landmark decision on same-sex marriage, to which the candidate replied, “I would strongly consider that, yes.”
This should come as no surprise as the candidate curries favor among evangelicals. A new poll shows 52% of white evangelicals believe Trump would be a “good” or “great” president. On Tuesday, Liberty University president Jerry Fallwell, Jr. endorsed Trump for president.
