Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump this week weighed in on the controversy surrounding Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis.

Davis has become a Christian celebrity fighting against the Supreme Court's summer ruling striking down gay marriage bans in all 50 states. After losing a series of appeals, a federal judge jailed her for refusing to issue marriage licenses to all qualified couples. Davis, who says issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples would violate her conscience, has continued her legal fight.

Appearing on The Christian Broadcasting Network's (CBN) The Brody File, Trump was asked his thoughts on the controversy.

“We have some very terrible Supreme Court justices and frankly they should have at least had that as a state's right issue. And the whole thing is very sad,” Trump answered. “But you would think that maybe she could let other people in her office sign [the licenses].”

“It was a terrible decision to put her in jail, I thought. It was not good and caused lots of problems.”

“But at at some point, I guess, probably other people will sign, and they'll get it done. At the same time we are a country of laws and the Supreme Court has ruled, whether you agree with these justices or not.”

“Obama's put some real beauties up there,” Trump added.

Davis gave her first national interviews this week, appearing on Good Morning America and Fox News.
