Moral depravity? Trump’s core supporters fiercely oppose same-sex marriage. Trump’s people have been working hard to subvert same-sex marriage since the day he was elected.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in charge of the State Department. He’s directing this issue. The decision to appeal cases directing the State Department to issue passports went all the way to the top. To Pompeo. He’s a strong evangelical Christian who believes that same-sex couples should not marry.
He’s clearly Trump’s man on this. The base are pleased.
