Washington, DC – Queerty notes that as Donald Trump flails and fails to confront any of an ever-growing number of major crises in the nation, his reelection campaign wants to sell supporters pride-themed t-shirts. The “Make America Great Again” shirts feature Trump’s slogan embossed in the rainbow colors of the pride flag.
The campaign began selling the shirts last December. The description on the Trump website reads: “Show your support for the LGBT community and the 45th President with this exclusive Make America Great Again T-Shirt.” In another action that hardly showed support for our communities, the Trump administration issues rule that gives healthcare workers the ability to discriminate against LGBTQ people
Of course, anyone with half a brain should realize that support for Trump clashes with support for the queer community. Trump has run the most homophobic administration in modern history, barring transgender people from serving in the military, removing protections for queer people in schools, and filed court documents arguing that employers should be able to fire employees for being LGBTQ. Trump’s Vice President, Mike Pence, is also a longtime supporter of conversion therapy. (Queerty – David Reddish at Queerty.com/donald-trump-selling-pride-shirts-course-20200601)
