Donald Trump loves to congratulate himself, we know and has been heard to say that he is getting “a lot of praise” from the LGBT community since taking position on the Orlando massacre, using it as another way to discredit his rival Hillary Clinton, Trump said,
“Ask yourself, who is really the friend of women and the LGBT community, Donald Trump with his actions, or Hilary Clinton with her words? Clinton wants to allow Radical Islamic terrorists to pour into our country – they enslave women and murder gays.
Hillary Clinton can never claim to be a friend of the gay community as long as she continues to support immigration policies that bring Islamic extremists to our country who suppress women, gays and anyone who doesn’t share their views.
She can’t have it both ways. She can’t claim to be supportive of these communities while trying to increase the number of people coming in who want to oppress them.”
After this public attack on Hillary and she was quick to respond by saying,
“Donald Trump says he’s ‘the real friend’ of the LGBT community. Yeah, no.”
Attached alongside the tweet was a short video compiling the Conservative candidate’s most controversial statements which include “I’m against gay marriage” and more.
But last week, Trump made his way to meet an anti-gay group, hoping to engage support from some of the 400 most powerful American Christian conservatives, known to the public as fierce opponents of the gay rights.
Entitled A Conversation About America’s Future with Donald Trump and Ben Carson, it is said the meeting was held behind closed doors and lasted for 7 hours!
Meanwhile, LGBT leaders insist they are everything but supporters of Trump’s presidential campaign.
Donald Trump says he's "the real friend" of the LGBT community.
