In recent years, it has been impossible to imagine a Republican Party platform that would not be pro-life and pro-traditional marriage, and a Democratic platform that would not be pro-choice and pro-gay marriage.
Although this divide is likely to continue, there are questions now being raised on the Republican side because of the popularity of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
Donald Trump recently announced his opposition to North Carolina’s “bathroom law” which requires its citizens to use the public bathroom that corresponds with their gender at birth.
In 2000, Trump flirted with the Republican bid for the presidency and said he supported traditional marriage. However, five years later, he enthusiastically expressed his approval for the gay marriage of Elton John and his partner.
Donald Trump may hold to traditional Republican positions, but if he does, when it comes to issues like abortion and LGBT questions, he doesn’t hold them in a way that even finds a place on his website and he doesn’t want to talk about them either.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/261529657″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
