Donald Trump has been wildly inconsistent when it comes to stating his position on gay marriage — but now, he’s vehemently refusing to clarify his stance at all, insisting that everybody is already clear on what his policy is.
Which they aren’t.
In the last several weeks, Trump told FOX News that he’d “strongly consider” overturning same-sex marriage, and he urged evangelical leaders to “trust” him to protect “traditional marriage.”
On the other hand, he flip-flopped while talking to a lesbian journalist, stating that he’d “move forward on LGBT rights.”
Now, to make matters even more confusing, the Republican frontrunner is apparently refusing to discuss gay marriage at all.
During a Q&A with reporter David Martosko, Mr. Trump insisted he’d made his position clear “150 times.”
“You’ve been kind of all over the map on [same-sex marriage],” Martosko said, “especially regarding your position on whether Supreme Court justices you might appoint should work to overturn the recent decision. Can you state unequivocally what is your position on gay marriages, and same-sex unions in general?”
Trump responded, “We have policy on it. And I’ve said it very, very strongly. And I think you know it. And it’s all done and, you know, in a campaign, how many times do I have to say it?”
Asked again to clarify, he replied, “It’s like, David, it’s like as an example, what is my position on 900 different things. I’ve said it 150 times. We’re not here for discussing that. But everybody knows how I feel on it.”
Martosko once again insisted that people don’t know what his position is.
Trump’s response? “David, sit down please. You know my position.”
