Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday weighed in on whether Kim Davis has the right to refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

A federal judge on Thursday found Davis, the elected clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky in contempt for refusing to comply with his ruling ordering her to issue marriage licenses to all qualified couples. Rather than issue marriage licenses to gay couples after the Supreme Court struck down gay marriage bans in all 50 states, Davis stopped issuing marriage licenses to all couples. Four couples, two of whom are gay, filed a federal lawsuit. The Supreme Court on Monday declined to intervene in the case.

Deputy clerks issued marriage licenses to six gay couples on Friday.

Appearing Friday on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Trump said it was a “very, very sticky situation.”

“I hate to see her put in jail,” he said.

But Trump agreed with host Joe Scarborough, when he asked, “The bottom line is, though, the Supreme Court makes a decision, that's the law of the land, right?”

“You have to go with it. The decision's been made and that is the law of the land,” Trump said.
