“As your president I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens.”
Donald Trump surprised the Republican National Convention when he broke from party tradition on Thursday to give a historic shout-out to the LGBT community.
“Only weeks ago in Orlando, Florida, 49 wonderful Americans were savagely murdered by terrorists,” Trump said during his acceptance speech. “As your president I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens.”
After the crowd roared in approval, Trump added: “I must say, as a Republican it’s so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said.”
How things are changing.
