In an apparent attempt to assuage the fears of Americans who believe in non-tradition marriage, a lifestyle that the Torah calls “toeivah,” President-elect Donald Trump told 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl in an interview that aired tonight, that he has no plans to roll back same-gender marriage rights.
Asked by Stahl if he personally supports marriage equality, Trump replied, “It’s irrelevant because it was already settled. It’s law. It was settled in the Supreme Court. I mean it’s done.” He went to clarify that even he were to appoint a judge who opposes marriage equality, the issue has been “settled” and he’s “fine with that.”
