MSNBC recently played a clip from the Alice B. Toklas Club Annual Pride Breakfast in San Francisco where 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris said she was running for president because President Donald Trump might take America back to a time when same-sex couples could not marry.
“The current occupant of the White House has no appreciation, no interest clearly and probably no knowledge of this history, of this work,” Harris claimed. “He says he wants to make America great again. Again for whom?”
“Back before couples could marry, all couples? Back before gay couples could adopt?” Harris said.
She added, “Well, I’m president because we’re not going back.”
This is completely preposterous.
Kamala Harris: “[Trump] says he wants to make America great again. Again for whom? Back before couples could marry, all couples? Back before gay couples could adopt?” There is no evidence of any of this. But the media loves pushing these Dem talking points https://t.co/MywCbHPVTA

Where do we even start?
Trump Has Never Been Against Gay Marriage
At no point in his presidential campaign or his time in the White House has President Trump even remotely suggested he would reverse the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage. More importantly, acceptance of the LGBT community was voiced loud and clear at the 2016 Republican National Convention where Trump was coronated.
“As president, I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology,” Trump said at the convention to applause.

Then, pleased by the applause, he went further, “And, I have to say, as a Republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said.”
“As president, I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology,” Trump said, again to cheers.
This was something new for Republicans–this much open acceptance of gay Americans was unprecedented in such a public expression by the party.
Thanks to Donald Trump.
“And, I have to say, as a Republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said,” Trump responded.
Donald Trump is the first president in American history who went into office stating that he supports gay marriage. Barack Obama did not come out in support of it until a full four years into his tenure.
But don’t let facts get in the way of Kamala Harris’s and the Democrats’ lies.
