Remember I said yesterday, regarding Trump’s opposition to the North Carolina transgender bathroom law:
Countdown to walkback in 3…2…1…

And when you’re Donald Trump, and you’re looking to walk back a sentiment without getting grief for it, where better than Sean Hannity?
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is tweaking his stance on North Carolina’s transgender bathroom law less than a day after he voiced his opposition to the legislation and suggested the state should just “leave it the way it is.”
“I love North Carolina, and they have a law, and it’s a law that, you know, unfortunately is causing them some problems,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview Thursday night. “And I fully understand that they want to go through, but they are losing business, and they are having people come out against.”
“I think that local communities and states should make the decision,” he went on to say. “And I feel very strongly about that. The federal government should not be involved.”
“In other words, let the state decide,” Hannity responded. “Kind of like your positions on education, give it back to the states.”
“Yeah, let them decide,” Trump said. “Absolutely.”
The statements on Fox News came shortly after Trump faced backlash over an NBC interview in which he said that before the state’s controversial bathroom law, “there have been very few problems.”
Who says Sean Hannity doesn’t make news on those rare occasions he decides to have Donald Trump as a “special guest” on his program??
