Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Friday that he hopes Congress will reverse the Supreme Court ruling declaring state bans on gay marriage unconstitutional with a “creative” law.

When Iowa talk radio host Simon Conway asked Carson whether he thought the decision was “a done deal,” Carlson replied that he did not.

“I hope it will be revisited because the reason that we have separation of powers is to prevent runaway courts, runaway executive branch, runaway legislative branch,” Carson said. “The laws are made by the legislative branch. And, you know, you can make a law to negate virtually anything, you just have to be creative in the way that you do it. So no, I don’t think it’s over by any stretch of the imagination.”

Carson added that as president he “would certainly get involved” in undoing the decision.

In an earlier statement, Carson had said that the marriage equality ruling is “the law of the land.”
