Sam Clovis has also said that he thinks that legalising same-sex marriage could lead to the legalisation of paedophilia. He also called homosexuality a lifestyle and a choice. Trump’s potential new advisor made the comments between 2012 and 2014 as a radio talk show host and a political activist. These claims were discovered by CNN KFile review. Trump’s nomination for the post has been criticised by Senate Democrats who argue that his scientific qualification is obviously not enough for such a position. “Someone who engages in LGBT behavior — I don’t know what the science is on this, I think it’s still out — but as far as we know, LGBT behavior is a choice they make”, Clovis says in a video obtained by CNN’s KFile. Writing in 2011 for the Iowa Republican blog, CLovis argued that if gay people were protected by the US constitution, so should left-handed people (aren’t they?).He has also used the “religious freedom” argument to rally against LGBT rights. Clovis has also suggested that same-sex marriage would lead to polygamy. Writing in the same post, Clovis argues that businesses should be allowed to discriminate against LGBT people if their religion demands them to.
