Ahead of this week’s Iowa caucuses, and the kickoff of the official state by state process to determine which nominees are selected to represent the Democratic and Republican parties in the upcoming election, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump suggested that he may find a way to repeal the legalization of same-sex marriage if elected.

When asked by host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday if he would use his authority in nominating justices to the Supreme Court during his presidency to eventually overturn the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges case which legalized same-sex marriage in all fifty states, Trump responded, “I would strongly consider that, yes.”

The back-and-forth followed initial remarks by Trump stating that the issue of same-sex marriage should have been left for states to decide for themselves.

“I don’t like the way they ruled. I disagree with the Supreme Court from the standpoint that it should be a states’ rights issue and that’s the way it should have been ruled on … I would have much preferred that they ruled at a state level and let the states make those rulings themselves.”

A gentle reminder; national treasure Cher is moving to Jupiter if Trump is elected president. Please don’t Cher move to Jupiter. Please don’t elect Trump president.
