Tapper Stumps Trump: 'What's Traditional About Being Married Three Times?'

CNN host Jake Tapper recently confronted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump about how his three marriages were morally justified if he only believed in so-called "traditional marriage" values.

CNN host Jake Tapper recently confronted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump about how his three marriages were morally justified if he only believed in so-called "traditional marriage" values.

After the U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized same-sex marriage on Friday, Trump accused Chief Justice John Roberts of letting the country down.

Although the candidate has said his views are "evolving," his campaign position is that only "traditional marriage" between "a man and a woman" should be legal.

CNN's Tapper asked Trump if he could justify his view on marriage in an interview that aired on Sunday.

"What do you say to a lesbian who's married or a gay man who's married who says, 'Donald Trump, what's traditional about being married three times?'" Tapper wondered.

"Well, they have a very good point," Trump admitted. "But I've been a very hardworking person. And actually, I have a great marriage, I have a great wife now. My [first] two wives were very good."

"But what do you say to a lesbian or a gay man?" Tapper pressed.

"I really don't say anything," Trump shrugged. "I'm just, Jake, I'm for traditional marriage."
