'Gays for Trump' placardA radio show host says he is bothered by a tweet from President Donald Trump that he is honored to be recognized as a "pro-gay" president.

Richard Grenell, who is homosexual, is a former U.S. Ambassador to Germany who returned home to become acting director of National Intelligence in Trump's cabinet. But now Grenell is working for the Republican National Committee as a senior advisor to focus on LGBT outreach during the 2020 campaign.  

In a video he produced for the Log Cabin Republicans, Grenell stated, “I know first hand that President Trump is the strongest ally that gay Americans have ever had in the White House. Donald Trump is the first president in American history to be pro-gay marriage from his first day in office."

Abraham Hamilton III, general counsel for American Family Association and a radio talk-show host, points out that President Trump did not reject the glowing description.

“The president didn't disavow anything said there, didn't make any clarifications, didn't say anything about it,” Hamilton told his radio audience. “And I thought, Wait a minute, what's being said about the president supporting same-sex marriage completely contradicts the GOP platform."

Hamilton says the president even tweeted "My great honor!" in response to Grenell's comment.

Hamilton says he was bothered more by Trump’s response to Grenell than the original statement from the Trump appointee. “I've known a long time that Log Cabin Republicans are out there,” he said, “but what bothered me is President Trump's tweet embracing it as his great honor."
