Trump 'cares' about anti-LGBTQ hate crimes—except when his supporters commit them

Trump 'cares' about anti-LGBTQ hate crimes—except when his supporters commit them
- After weeks of remaining silent on Pride month, President Donald Trump finally tweeted about LGBTQ people. But true to form, his acknowledgment of the Pulse shooting was in support of a dangerous anti-Muslim agenda that multiple courts have declared unconstitutional.
Monday, June 12, marked the one-year anniversary of the killing of 49 people at the gay Orlando nightclub, where a lone gunman opened fire on patrons celebrating the bar’s Latin night. Conspicuously missing, however, from Trump’s remembrance tweet were words like “queer,” “Latino,” or “immigrant,” as these communities have constantly been under threat by the policies of his own administration. “We will NEVER FORGET the victims who lost their lives one year ago today in the horrific PulseNightClub shooting,” the president wrote Monday afternoon.
