President Donald Trump said on Monday he will live with the U.S. Supreme Court decision that a federal law barring workplace discrimination protects gay and transgender employees. Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said the ruling was a very powerful decision.
As you can see below, CBS is reporting that Trump says he read the ruling. Which very obviously wouldn’t have happened in a million years.
