For the record: Trump on firing gays

NBC news reporter Chuck Todd asked Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump Sunday, “Should private companies be able to fire people because they’re gay?” Here’s the response:

Trump: Well, it’s a big discussion and I guess it’s getting a lot of negative rulings right now –that whole thing. And I’m willing to go with what the courts are saying.

Todd: And that is… you don’t think a private company should be able to do that.

Trump: I don’t think it should be a reason, no. I don’t think it should be a reason.
