Donald Trump has done an about-face on North Carolina’s anti-LGBT bathroom bill, HB 2. While Trump previously came out against the legislation, saying that he thought the state made a mistake by passing HB 2, Trump now says he’s “going with the state.”
HB 2 was passed by the state’s legislature and signed by Governor Pat McCrory within one day.
Speaking with The News & Observer, Trump said of the hateful legislation,
“I’m going with the state. The state, they know what what’s going on, they see what’s happening and generally speaking I’m with the state on things like this. I’ve spoken with your governor, I’ve spoken with a lot of people and I’m going with the state.”
