As the Supreme Court of the Untied States hears a case that may legalize discrimination toward the LGBT community, Sarah Sanders confirmed that Trump supports private businesses who want to post signs that could potentially read: “Gays Not Allowed.” The press secretary made the comment after she was asked by New York Times‘s Michael Shear: “The lawyer for the solicitor general’s office for the administration said today in the Supreme Court if it would be legal, possible for a baker to put a sign in his window saying we don’t bake cakes for gay weddings. Does the president agree that that would be ok?”
“The president certainly supports religious liberty and that’s something he talked about during the campaign and has upheld since taking office,” Sanders replied.
When pushed further about whether he would support a sign that ready No Gays, she replied: “I believe that would include that.”
