Republican presidential and opinionated billionaire Donald Trump has gone on the record to state that private companies shouldn’t be able to fire employees due to their sexuality.
During a recent interview with NBC’s Meet the Press, he told an interviewer, “Well, it’s a big discussion and I guess it’s getting a lot of negative rulings right now… and I’m willing courts to go with what the courts are saying. I don’t think it should be a reason, no.”
However, that’s not to say he’s altogether open-minded about homosexuality. Earlier in his campaign, he clarified his stance on gay marriage: “I live in New York. New York is a place with lots of gays, and I think it’s great but I’m not in favor of gay marriage.”
