Trump’s least famous offspring mangled the acronym and otherwise mismanaged a too-little-too-late Trump campaign event seeking LGBTQ support. The internet was not amused.
Tiffany Trump, the First Family’s youngest daughter, is being highly criticized after headlining a disastrous and offensive “LGBTQ pride” campaign event for her father, in which she left out the “T” – for the transgender community – upon hitting the stage and garbling what should have been a simple “LGBTQIA.”
Tiffany also immediately told the presumably LGBTQ Republicans at the sparsely-attended event her father used to support them, but stopped after entering politics.
“Prior to politics, he supported gays, lesbians, the LGBQI – IA plus community, OK?” Tiffany Trump admitted.
Unsurprisingly, the announcement didn’t even mention it was an LGBTQ event.

President Donald Trump is the most anti-LGBTQ president in modern American history. Directly and indirectly he has attacked the LGBTQ community, through rescinding President Barack Obama’s executive orders protecting LGBTQ people, by banning transgender Americans from serving in the U.S. Military, by attacking ObamaCare, by installing far right wing anti-LGBTQ judges at every level of the federal judiciary, by empowering the religious right, by creating anti-LGBTQ offices within federal agencies, by enabling and supporting white supremacists, white nationalists, and other domestic terrorists, and more.
On social media Tiffany Trump was roundly excoriated – take a look:
1. He reversed Obama's trans protections in schools.— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) October 20, 2020
2. He banned transgender service members.
3. He banned homeless trans people in shelters.
4. He tried to reverse Obama's protections for trans people in health care.
5. He nominated anti-LGBTQIA+ judges.

There are around 10 people in the room! 😂 BTW, he doesn't represent me either.— Resist Now (@heisgoingdown) October 20, 2020
The religious right would be furious to know the Trump campaign is courting & cavorting with "homosexuals." (Even if Trump is stripping them of rights, this is still giving them legitimacy.)— Michelangelo Signorile, subscribe to my newsletter (@MSignorile) October 20, 2020
So make sure religious right leaders know about these secretive "Trump Pride" events.
I know her friends here in LA. Straight up…she’s lying. Don’t know if it’s from stupidity or she’s getting something. This. Is. BEYOND. Pathetic. Get out of our community #tiffanytrump mother fucking leach. JFC! 🤬😡🤬😡 https://t.co/oQAKsZ4PTX— suzanne westenhoefer (@szwest1) October 20, 2020
Tiffany Trump led a tiny rally in which she claimed to have gay friends and eliminated the T from LGBTQ. Just when I thought I couldn’t hate the Trumps more, and it’s hard to believe Tiffany has any friends— Paul Rudnick (@PaulRudnickNY) October 20, 2020
I think we’ve answered the question as to why we don’t see more of Tiffany on the Campaign trail— Molly Jong-Fast🏡 (@MollyJongFast) October 20, 2020
