At the RNC’s finale, Donald Trump promised to be a great ally to the LGBT community as president — but only when it comes to ISIS. He vowed to save LGBT citizens from ‘violence and oppression,’ but he didn’t include the discrimination they face from laws passed by his own party!
The theme of the last night of the Republican National Convention was “Make American One Again,” and for Donald Trump, 70, that means including all members of the LGBT community. Sorta. While speaking on the final night of the Republican National Convention on July 21, he made sure to remember those killed in the Orlando Nightclub shooting, promising to never let that happen again.
“Only weeks ago, in Orlando, Florida, 49 wonderful Americans were savagely murdered by an Islamic terrorist,” said the GOP’s presidential candidate. “This time, the terrorist targeted our LGBTQ community. It’s no good — and we’re going to stop it. As your President, I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology. Believe me!” Donald ended his promise by saying, “As a Republican, it’s so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said.”
