In November 2016, Americans will head to the polls to elect the next President of the United States. There are many great people who have put their hat into the ring with the hopes of becoming the next Chief Commander, including LGBT activist, Hillary Clinton. For years, Clinton has been a long-time supporter of equal rights and the LGBT community. She has been strong and consistent on her message. However, there is one particular candidate who has become strongly disliked by the LGBT community: Donald Trump.
The legendary billionaire, real estate development icon, reality TV show star, and long time Playboy entered the Republican race with hopes of winning top spot. While the man has certainly had many proud accomplishments in his life, at the envy of most people, his political desires are not one of his stronger life decisions.
Throughout the campaign he has been an embarrassment to America on the global stage. He has called his opponents liars, made fun of people, and has been caught in a circle of comments compromising his credibility and trustworthiness.
Despite all the turmoil, Trump has been leading and winning in many of the primary elections and dominating in the poles. As the momentum builds, so does his ego and attacks on his opponents.
While Trump has changed his stance on just about every issue, telling voters what they want to hear, the businessman has little or no experience in politics or foreign policy. In recent days, Donald Trump came leaping out of the closet to say if he is elected President of the United States he will do away with gay marriage. The LGBT community is outraged at the recent announcements.
Politicians know they can manipulate and sway voters. Trump has put his mark in the sand on gay marriage. This only fuels the fire and divide, which is exactly his strategy. These comments come as no surprise to the Clinton camp and supporters, who continue to rally around the leading Democratic candidate.
Think about this… If Trump is willing to pull gay marriage this early in the election, what’s to stop him from going even further to put an end to adoption, transgender rights, Pride marches, and other equality rights?
America, be very careful when it comes to voting day in November. You can make America great again… if you vote for Clinton!
