This makes me wonder, what exactly are Trump's politics on things like LGBT equality? In 2009, when Miss California Carrie Prejean came under fire for saying she thought marriage should be between a man and a woman, Trump defended her by pointing out, quite rightly, that her answer mirrors those given by President Obama.
One of Trump's estates also hosted an event for anti-gay Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi.
Meanwhile, in other CPAC news: Bachmann offered plenty of saber-rattling about Obamacare being "socialist," calling out China control of U.S. debt and how conservatives need to unite to make him a one-term president, while Gingrich used his time to advocate for the end of the Environmental Protection Agency, which would be replaced by an "environmental solutions agency," and criticize Obama on national security: "The Obama administration is wrong on terrorism, wrong on Iran, wrong on Hezbollah, wrong on the Muslim Brotherhood."
Neither addressed abortion, gay rights or other issues that have for so long defined this conservative get-together.
