Trump's anti-gay history or why I never believed a word he said/says

Unread postby Valso » 23 July 2020, 16:54

I'm posting this topic for all those who don't believe me when I tell them Chump was and still is anti-gay.

Many times I've tried to find that debate with him prior his election where he said that, if elected, he would eradicate gays but as I said in another topic, that video disappeared pretty soon after the words were spoken.
In a topic in another forum someone asked where this video can be seen, so I'm trying once again to dig it out - in case it was posted somewhere and Trump's PR agents missed it. So far nothing but I did find something else: it could be called "Trump's anti-gay history". I'm sure that after reading these materials, you'll see how contradictory his promise to be "gay friendly" sounds and which he isn't doing, it was just an empty promise in order to get to power.

Here you can hear him clearly state he's gonna do everything to protect the LGBT community - just a few months before the elections: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/ ... clnk&gl=bg
Sorry for the cached link but this is the only way I can see the article - we Europeans are lesser people and our peasant eyes are not worthy of reading Their Magnificency Washington Post.
But his actions ever since he was elected indicate quite the opposite. So let's go back further in his anti-gay history:

2011: https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/wild-d ... quotes/17/?
In a May 2011 interview with the New York Times, Donald Trump explained his stance on gay marriage like this:

"It's like in golf. A lot of people -- I don't want this to sound trivial -- but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive. It's weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can't sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist."

Even more history of that, broken down by years, in this article:

And again:
https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2 ... -marriage/

I could keep post more and more examples but I think these are more than enough. It seems to me that I was the only one who payed close attention to Chump's words after the first debate which took somewhere in March or April 2016 and all other interviews and debates before his elections.
After so many years of repeatedly stating he hates gay marriage, how come suddenly before the elections he started loving it and said he would protect the LGBT community? That sounded fake back then and it still sounds fake to me. Which still makes me wonder how could the American people vote for this hypocrite. Are all of his voters homophobic? I find that hard to believe.
