The Washington Blade’s Chris Johnson today asked Trump if he’s OK with his administration’s recent steps to make it easier to discriminate against LGBT workers. His response:
“Well, you know, I just got an award, or an endorsement yesterday from the exact group. You saw that? They gave me the endorsement yesterday. I’ve done very well with that community and some of my biggest supporters are of that community, and I talk to them a lot about it. I think I’ve done really very well with that community, as you know, Peter Thiel and so many others, they’re — they’re with me all the way, and I just got a big endorsement from the Log Cabin group.”
Trump ignored the actual question.
Trump has not “done very well” with the LGBTQ community. In fact, he and his administration have rolled back protections and targeted LGBTQ people 123 times since 2017. https://t.co/wSHvAiafJt
