President Trump Holds True to His Word and Appoints Openly Gay Conservative as Ambassador to Germany
Back in 2000 Donald Trump was interviewed by the gay Advocate magazine.
This was after eight years of Bill and Hillary Clinton in the White House.
Donald Trump in 2000 defended gays from the Clintons.
Why should gays and lesbians be interested in you as a presidential candidate?
I grew up in New York City, a town with different races, religions, and peoples. It breeds tolerance. In all truth, I don’t care whether or not a person is gay. I judge people based on their capability, honesty, and merit. Being in the entertainment business — that is, owning casinos and … several large beauty pageants — I’ve worked with many gay people. I have met some tough, talented, capable, terrific people. Their lifestyle is of no interest to me.
Would we see gay people in a Trump administration?
I would want the best and brightest. Sexual orientation would be meaningless. I’m looking for brains and experience. If the best person for the job happens to be gay, I would certainly appoint them. One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace, good people don’t go into government. I’d want to change that.
Despite what the #FakeNews media reports, President Trump has never had an issue with gays.
President Trump recently appointed Richard Grenell as Ambassador to Germany.

Richard Grenell was the longest serving US spokesman at the United Nations. He is a FOX News Foreign Policy contributor. Richard is pro-life and pro-Second Amendment.
If you have ever heard Richard on FOX you know he is a total conservative and very much pro-Trump.
Richard is also gay. If Richard Grenell was appointed UN Ambassador in the Trump administration he would be the first openly gay cabinet member in US history. More importantly, Richard is qualified for the job and is a HUUGE Trump supporter.
