Donald Trump Supports LGBT Workplace Protections But Not Marriage Equality

GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump told NBC’s “Meet The Press” yesterday that private companies should not be allowed to fire employees if they are LGBT.

“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.”

Don’t put The Donald down the “LGBT Ally” category just yet though.

Earlier this year, Trump went on record as opposing marriage equality: “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.”
