The Trump administration has recently launched a global campaign to end the criminalization of homosexuality with a focus on countries such as Iran, where it is currently illegal to be gay.
This completely destroys the Democrats argument that “Trump hates gay people.”
Trump is literally being attacked for trying to fight for gay rights across the world.
Check out what NBC reported:
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the highest-profile openly gay person in the Trump administration, is leading the effort, which kicks off Tuesday evening in Berlin. The U.S. embassy is flying in LGBT activists from across Europe for a strategy dinner to plan to push for decriminalization in places that still outlaw homosexuality — mostly concentrated in the Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean.
This campaign is focused mainly on decriminalizing homosexuality and came in response to a recent execution of a gay man in Iran.
Although the decriminalization strategy is still being hashed out, officials say it’s likely to include working with global organizations like the United Nations, the European Union and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, as well as other countries whose laws already allow for gay rights. Other U.S. embassies and diplomatic posts throughout Europe, including the U.S. Mission to the E.U., are involved, as is the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor.
Narrowly focused on criminalization, rather than broader LGBT issues like same-sex marriage, the campaign was conceived partly in response to the recent reported execution by hanging of a young gay man in Iran, the Trump administration’s top geopolitical foe.
Pretty good of the Trump administration to make this a priority, right? Maybe the Left will finally get behind President Trump on an issue, right?
Well according to a far Left magazine, “Trump’s plan to decriminalize homosexuality is an old racist tactic.” Seriously? You can’t make this up!
The Trump administration is set to launch a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality in dozens of nations where anti-gay laws are still on the books, NBC News reported Monday. While on its surface, the move looks like an atypically benevolent decision by the Trump administration, the details of the campaign belie a different story. Rather than actually being about helping queer people around the world, the campaign looks more like another instance of the right using queer people as a pawn to amass power and enact its own agenda.
Instead of praising President Trump for standing up for gay people all around the world, Out Magazine finds a way to make the news about Trump being a “racist.” How pathetic!
Check out some of the responses to the article on Twitter.
Yup, no matter what he does they find a way to somehow make it bad. You can’t make this stuff up anymore. https://t.co/WHxgsx1xA6

No matter what Trump does, it’s “bad” in the eyes of Democrats.
.@outmagazine is a disgrace to the LGBT Community. President Trump, who is the first US President to have never been against Gay Marriage, is fighting for LGBT all over the world & the USA.
You’re against this?
He supported LGBT even before entering politics.

It’s becoming more and more clear that the Left rather oppose President Trump than agree with him on something that makes the world a better place.
Wow you’d really rather gay people continue to be killed for their sexuality than give Trump credit for anything

No matter what your views are on gay marriage, it’s good that The Trump Administration is taking the lead in ending the criminalization of homosexuality.
Instead of constantly attacking him, the Left should agree with the President, especially on an issue that they claim to care so much about.
