Donald Trump waved a rainbow flag on yesterday’s rally. He came under fire after promising to reject the pro-LGBT reforms provided by Obama’s administration, so now he tries to win at least a little bit of support from LGBT electorate. Mr Trump was thrown the flag by a fan as he entered the rally in Greeley, Colorado. He made no reference to the flag or LGBT equality in his speech. The flag was waved upside down – an internationally recognized signal of distress, which ironically signifies how many LGBT rights groups feel about the prospect of a Trump/Pence White House.
And despite the accidental ‘support’ shown to LGBT, Trump is not going to stop limiting them im their rights. Last month Trump confirmed he would sign the so-called First Amendment Defence Act, which bans the government from taking any “action against a person, wholly or partially on the basis that such person believes or acts in accordance with a religious belief or moral conviction that marriage is or should be recognised as the union of one man and one woman, or that sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage.”
