The website for the presidential campaign of Republican nominee Donald Trump is selling “LGBTQ for Trump” t-shirts and pins, drawing applause from some and disappointment from others.
“Show your pride and your support for Trump with this exclusive equality tee,” the store page for the t-shirt, available as the “Trump pride men’s tee,” reads.
The shirt, swiped with rainbow colors and bearing the phrase “LGBTQ for Trump,” is available for $30 while the pin sells for two for $5.
Chris Barron of LGBT for Trump and GOProud praised the campaign’s offering of homosexual apparel, Tweeting, “@realDonaldTrump makes history again. First GOP Presidential candidate to do LGBT outreach merchandise! LOVE IT!”
Garison Carrell of the Log Cabin Republicans did the same, posting, “The absolute most pro-gay candidate. Thank you @realDonaldTrump #GaysforTrump #LGBT #Election2016”
But Cary Gordon, pastor of Cornerstone World Outreach in Sioux City, Iowa, expressed sorrow over the development.
“From Donald Trump’s campaign website… You can buy pro-gay pride Trump for President t-shirts. Tell me again how the Church should ignore and dishonor Exodus 18:21 to help this wicked assistant to the enemy of religious liberty so they can ‘stop’ a ‘greater evil,’” he Tweeted on Sunday.
