Despite the Trump administration’s numerous attacks on the LGBTQ community, the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay conservative political group, has endorsed the Donald for reelection.
Apparently, seeing gay billionaire Peter Thiel onstage at the 2016 Republican National Convention was a wet dream come true for the gay conservatives.
The only other grounds for their support they can note to are promises to end the HIV epidemic and promote LGBTQ rights abroad as reasons to support the man who kicked HIV+ and transgender soldiers out of the U.S. military.
But the op-ed penned by the group for the Washington Post eventually gets to the real reason for endorsing – and yes, it has to do with money:
It is not merely policies specific to LGBTQ people that have been good for our community.
The president’s tax cuts have benefited LGBTQ families and helped put food on their tables. His opportunity zones have helped create new LGBTQ-founded small businesses. The administration’s aggressive negotiations on trade deals have preserved LGBTQ jobs. His hard-line on foreign policy has protected LGBTQ lives.
What benefits all Americans benefits the LGBTQ community, as we cross every racial, socioeconomic, religious and cultural divide.
The group did not endorse the Trumpster in 2016.
