Last year, LGBTQ activists complained that President Trump did not issue a pride month proclamation, although many high-ranking officials and executive departments did so, This year the president issued a statement, and LGBTQ activists complained about it. But of course.
As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals….

You work overtime to make equality a partisan issue. Stop. You aren’t helping. Gays and lesbians know President Trump is for equality. Your list is ridiculous spin and all about your own survival. https://t.co/PmtqDYNsOa

This, from today’s print edition, is embarrassing for the Washington Post. Didn’t the editors realize that @realdonaldtrump said three days ago what they report him today as expected not to say? pic.twitter.com/yVTdAZidFQ

More. Obama was a more self-evidendently pro-LGBTQ rights president, as progressive activists view LGBTQ rigthts. But activists give Trump no credit for anything – from his convention acceptance speech pledging “to our protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression” (following the shooting deaths at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub) to openly gay appointments, to his administration’s raising the issue of the safety and security of gay people around the globe. Instead, efforts to find a workable balance between the rights of religious traditionalists not to face state coercion to provide creative services to same-sex weddings get denounced as “bigotry” and “hate” by progressives who have nothing but contempt for the rights of those whom they detest.
This is your friendly reminder that — despite all his faults — Donald Trump is the most pro-gay president in American history. https://t.co/aRm0ILsP0Q

More Fake News from twisted gays. Only 3 out of 294 embassies requested to fly the gay flag. The rules state no flag except the stars and stripes may fly on the official pole. The embassies were told they could hang the gay flag anywhere else. SO HATEFUL https://t.co/MTOxqNlgCk
