Tiffany Trump, the youngest daughter of Donald Trump, hosted a ‘Trump Pride’ event in Florida in hopes of attracting queer votes for her father’s reelection despite his dismal record on LGBTQ rights and protections.

From Newsweek:

“I know what my father believes in. Prior to politics, he [Trump] supported gays, lesbians, the LGBQIIA+ community,” Tiffany began before then talking about “fabricated lies” and social media.

She said: “It saddens me. I have friends of mine who reach out and they say how could you support your father, we know your best friends are gay.”

“I know what my father believes in,” said Tiffany Trump in a 10-minute speech at the Westshore Grand Hotel. “Prior to politics he supported gays, lesbians … the LGBQIA+ community, okay.”

Many have pointed out she left out the ‘T’ in the acronym which stands for trans.

Kellyanne Conway: Tiffany Trump Is NOT Registered To Vote In Two States

Donald Trump has announced that he wants a “major investigation” into voter fraud, saying he would have won the popular vote had it not been for 3-5 million “illegal” votes cast for Hillary Clinton.

Part of what drives Trump’s logic on the issue is his assertion that many, many people are registered to vote in two or more states, which is not illegal. His belief seems to be folks are registering and voting in duplicate states across the country.

Ergo, anyone with “dual registrations” must be suspect of voter fraud?

Well, it turns out his own daughter, Tiffany Trump, is registered to vote in both New York and Pennsylvania. According to reports, having been a student at the University of Pennsylvania until last May, she was registered to vote in Philadelphia. But this fall, she registered in New York City so she could vote for her father in the New York state primary.

A Philadelphia County elections official confirmed to NBC News on Thursday that Tiffany continues to be listed as active in the voter rolls there. In addition, public records in New York City, where she now lives, also list her as registered to vote there.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told The Today Show‘s Matt Lauer that it isn’t true that Tiffany Trump is registered in both states. “I talked last night to Tiffany Trump, and she said it is flatly false that she is registered in two states,” Conway said Thursday.

“She had been registered in Pennsylvania and went through the process, said it was very byzantine, and took a long time, but she said she is not registered in two states,” she said.

To be clear, there’s nothing nefarious about being registered to vote in more than one state. Many people move from one state to another and don’t think to “unregister” their voter registration as they leave a state. I don’t think I ever “unregistered” in New York, but I assume after several election cycles my status was wiped clean there.

I’ll also add that if what Trump is trying to claim is that 3-5 million people, particularly in California and New York, “double registered” in hopes of running up Hillary Clinton’s score,  wouldn’t the geniuses behind such a scheme have done so in vital swing states like Florida or Pennsylvania?
