Trump to anti-Gay rally: Vote for me and see things happen

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

'If you get everybody out to vote...we will win, and you will see things happen for the evangelicals,' Donald Trump told a Christian-right rally in Orlando.

'You will see things happen that you won't believe, and most important for religion, you're gonna see things happen. For religion. All religions,' Trump said, adding that 'once I win I will do my thing that I do very well.'

'It's probably, mainly the only way that I will get to heaven, so I better do a good job.'

The event where Trump spoke, billed as 'Rediscovering God In America,' was sponsored by two anti-LGBT evangelical groups: Liberty Counsel, the group that defended Kim Davis; and the American Renewal Project, whose stated goal is to 'mobilize conservative Christian viewers and inspire right-wing pastors to run for elected office.'

Former Trump rival and current Trump endorser Marco Rubio also spoke.

Although the anti-LGBT rally was scheduled on the two-month anniversary of the Orlando massacre, Trump never uttered a word about Pulse nightclub or made any direct reference to the LGBT community.

He did promise religious leaders that he would put an end to federal tax regulations that prevent their churches from getting involved in politics.

'We're gonna get your voice back. We're gonna get it back,' he said.

Trump also seemed to acknowledge that he was not the Christian right's first choice among the Republican presidential contenders.

'I hate to tell you, folks,' Trump said, 'you got two choices. You got two choices. You've got two choices, and one choice, you're not going for that choice. So I feel confident. I feel confident.'

Trump also repeated his inflammatory accusations against President Obama and his rival for the presidency, Hillary Clinton.

'I made the statement before that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, these are the founders of ISIS. These are the founders of ISIS. Because of bad judgments,' he said. 'These are the founders. And some say, 'Well, that's not very nice.' Nice? If they said it about me it'd be fine. If I say something about them it's terrible...

'I said they get the Most Valuable Player Award. ISIS is going to present them with the Most Valuable Player Award, you know, like in high school,' Trump continued, calling them 'bad people, with bad judgment, and at the top we have an incompetent leader.'

Pathetic homocon endorsement of Trump
On the same day Trump spoke at the anti-LGBT rally, a Gay Republican and former candidate for mayor of Orlando - Randy Ross - spoke at a Trump rally in Kissimmee, Fla.

Calling himself a '50-year-old man who is a Republican that happens to be Gay, who is an American,' Ross added, 'I will not go back in the closet because I am supporting Donald J. Trump for president.'

Ross also blamed Hillary Clinton because the Clinton Foundation - run by her husband - takes 'money from the countries of people that behead gay people.' He also criticized President Obama for pushing for increased gun control after the shooting in Orlando and for not saying the words 'radical Islamic terrorism.'

Ross neglected to mention that Trump also has financial ties to anti-LGBT foreign governments, including licensing his name to a golf club in Dubai and leasing his New York estate to the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort also worked as a political consultant for former Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovych and reportedly received secret cash payments of up to $12.7 million from a Yanukovych slush fund. Yanukovych is an ally of anti-Gay Russian president Vladimir Putin.
