Trump’s “Gang of Hate” Expands; Receives Endorsement from Ted Cruz

You’ll never guess whom Texas Senator Ted Cruz just endorsed. Well, maybe you will. The rumor is true:  Cruz finally gave in and got on the Trump train.

Luckily, he’s not alone. Just this morning, the Trump campaign announced it hired the one and only Rick “turn back the clock” Santorum as a campaign adviser.

Whether the issue is marriage equality or critical protection from discrimination, Cruz has consistently opposed equality for LGBTQ Americans. And he’s gone even further, attacking fellow Republicans for marching in pride parades, warning of the threat of “mandatory gay marriage” and calling 2016 the “religious liberty election.” You’re shocked. We know. He also vowed to make his opposition to LGBTQ equality a centerpiece of his presidential campaign, and he lived up to that promise until he, you know, lost and dropped out.

Other members of Trump’s “Gang of Hate” include Tony Perkins, Michele Bachmann, James Dobson, Marco Rubio and Sam Brownback.

With friends like these, there’s no doubt that a Donald Trump presidency would be a disaster for the LGBTQ community. Click here to take the pledge to support pro-LGBTQ candidates this November.
