Trump says same sex marriage is settled law

Scotus settled it and he is fine with that. Scotus’ ruling on abortion is not settled, however.

President-Elect Donald Trump said the issue of marriage equality in the U.S. is settled Supreme Court law and he’s “fine with that,” yet pledged to support overturning the 1973 high court decision that a woman has a right to choose to have an abortion.

Speaking on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” the Republican said it was “irrelevant” whether he personally supports same-sex marriage.
“It was already settled,” Trump said Friday at Trump Tower, according to a transcript released by the network for the interview airing Sunday. “It’s law. It was settled in the Supreme Court. I mean it’s done.”

Personally, I don’t really care one way or the other about same sex marriage but I despise abortion in all forms. Therefore, as a practical matter, I am good with his positions. That said, it is difficult how you can argue that same sex marriage is settled law because Scotus says so but Scotus opinion on abortion doesn’t count.
