GOP Frontrunner Donald Trump Vows to Undo Nationwide Marriage Equality

by Maureen McCarty January 31, 2016

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump today pledged that, if elected, he would appoint justices who would reverse the landmark Supreme Court decision establishing marriage equality nationwide. 

"It 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 said on Fox News Sunday. "I disagree with the court in that it should have been a states' rights issue."

Trump, who has been married three times himself, leads the Republican field by double digits and is widely expected to win tomorrow's Iowa caucuses. 

But Trump isn’t the only GOP Presidential candidate to attack loving, committed same-sex couples. Marco Rubio has similarly vowed to try and overturn last June's decision. And eight candidates -- Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee -- have pledged their support for the discriminatory First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) -- or similar legislation -- to open up broad loopholes and put LGBT Americans at risk for discrimination in their daily lives. 

Following the U.S. Supreme Court decisions in U.S. v. Windsor and Obergefell v. Hodges, same-sex married couples are entitled to all federal spousal benefits regardless of where they live. Under FADA, however, individual businesses could run roughshod over the civil rights of these couples and deny them the spousal benefits they have earned and deserve.
