President Donald Trump has not publicly acknowledged the early endorsement he received late last week from the gay Republican group Log Cabin Republicans, but he was quick to mention it when asked about his record of destroying the civil rights of LGBTQ people.
Trump bragged, “they’re with me all the way, and I just got a big endorsement from the Log Cabin group,” during a Tuesday afternoon press gaggle, according to pool reports.
“I’ve done very well with that community,” Trump said of LGBT people. ” I just got an award, or an endorsement yesterday from the exact group,” he added, referring to the Log Cabin Republicans’ endorsement. LCR refused to endorse Trump during the 2016 election, but on Friday falsely claimed Trump has “met his commitments to LGBTQ Americans.”
