His point is that Trump stood up for gay rights when Hillary did not, and that he will stand up to the Islamic State while Hillary takes money from Saudi Arabia and appeases Iran -- countries that execute gay people fro being gay.
Barron wrote, "For LGBT Americans, this election won't be about bathrooms or who will bake our wedding cakes. No, this election will be about which of the candidates for President is willing to stand up and fight to defend our very right to life itself."
More from Barron:
Before Trump, Republican nominees shied from using the phrase LGBT on the campaign trail. In contrast, Donald Trump more than said the word, he promised action:
"Our nation stands together in solidarity with the members of Orlando's LGBT community. They have been through something that nobody could ever experience. This is a very dark moment in America's history. A radical Islamic terrorist targeted the nightclub, not only because he wanted to kill Americans, but in order to execute gay and lesbian citizens, because of their sexual orientation.
"It's a strike at the heart and soul of who we are as a nation. It's an assault on the ability of free people to live their lives, love who they want, and express their identity. It's an attack on the right of every single American to live in peace and safety in their own country."
Clinton seems to fancy herself as the Cher of politics for LGBT Americans -- an ally, an advocate and an icon. The truth is that she only became an ally of LGBT Americans once it became politically advantageous for her to be one. It's hard not to conclude that her evolution from Defense of Marriage Act supporter to marriage equality advocate had more to do with her ambitions than any deep-seated beliefs.
Unlike Clinton, Trump has a record in the business world of inclusion and support for LGBT Americans. Donald Trump was supporting average LGBT Americans who worked for his companies and patronized his hotels and clubs long before it became trendy to do so.Republicans in Washington keep saying their party needs to reach out to gay people. Here is a candidate who does, Washington Republicans react by circling their Never Trump wagons.
The purpose of a government is to protect your rights. People don't feel safe. tell me again how this helps Hillary.
