Trump Pride: Gay Republicans on why they're backing the president

Trump made a halfhearted effort to court the LGBTQ community in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. He called the massacre of 49 mostly LGBTQ people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, that year an "assault on the ability of free people to live their lives, love who they want and express their identity."

At the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Trump swore "to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology."

And two days before Election Day, he grabbed an upside-down Pride flag inscribed with "LGBT for Trump" at a rally in Colorado and waved it around.


  1. I have a couple of gay friends and asked them why the gay community is so opposed to Trump. At first they shrugged. They had no idea because he never spoke about ending gay marriage or gay army rights or anything else the community had recently achieved. In the end they concluded that since to be a good gay you have to be a liberal and in order to be a good liberal you have to hate Trump, the gay community decided to hate Trump so they could be good liberals. This is yet another case, like his supposed Jew-hatred, where liberals decided he was something and ran with it despite all the evidence to the contrary.

  2. Wow! some of my best friends are Jewish I am therefore an expert on any topic dealing with Jews
