Donald Trump: Gay community is going ‘big league’ for me
Trump is a liberal with New York ‘values’.
Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump said Wednesday his campaign has seen an outpouring of support from the LGBT community since the Orlando shootings.
“I’ve heard a lot of talk over the last two days since I’ve been talking about this subject, a lot of people are supporting me that you wouldn’t think necessarily would be supporting me and they’re supporting me big league,” Trump told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren late Wednesday.
The New York businessman claimed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has lost support from gay voters because of his airing that she accepted millions of dollars from countries that persecute women and LGBT people.
“[T]hey are people that are coming in, again, their attitude toward gays and their attitude toward women is not compatible with the attitudes of our country,” Trump added.
A recent Fox News poll conducted before Sunday’s nightclub shootings in Orlando put Clinton up three points over Trump.
