That man is Donald Trump. Still to be determined is in what country these are manufactured.

Trump is opposed to marriage equality, indicated earlier this year that he doesn’t object to anti-trans state laws like North Carolina’s HB2, and none ofthe 11 names he has floated as his potential Supreme Court nominees have established reputations as being LGBTQ allies. In January, Trump said he would “strongly consider” appointing justices who would overturn the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage if elected president, and his list of potential SCOTUS appointees indicates he wasn’t kidding. He also has a history of making LGBTQ-disparaging comments.

And all of that comes before we even get to Trump’s vice presidential choice, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R), who prior to becoming Trump’s running mate was perhaps best known nationally for signing a bill that gave his state’s businesses, employers, and healthcare providers the ability to refuse service to LGBTQ people on “religious liberty” grounds. Nonetheless, Pence’s name appears on the back of the “LGBTQ for Trump” shirts.
