Donald Trump's attempt to paint himself as an ally to LGBT communities was rejected on Wednesday in the bluntest terms possible thanks to the #AskTheGays tag.
As Towleroad reported, the GOP's presumptive presidential candidate once again tried to incite tension between those communities and Muslims during a campaign speech, as he said, "Ask the gays what they think and what they do, in, not only Saudi Arabia, but many of these countries, and then you tell me -- who's your friend, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?"
Twitter users then answered the "question" in no uncertain terms, as seen below.
