The leader of the national organization of LGBT Republicans told Big League Politics he is frustrated by the mainstream media’s distortion of President Donald J. Trump’s attitude and policies regarding the LGBT community.

“We have never had a Republican administration in the United States that has stated unequivocally and explicitly its commitment to the human rights of LGTB individuals globally,” said Gregory T. Angelo, the president of the Log Cabin Republicans.

“In the past, you had indications from the George W. Bush administration and the George H.W. Bush administration, but they never explicitly said it,” he said.

Angelo said the Bush I and Bush II White Houses would often leak its support on background or appoint gay ambassadors or other officials as a symbolic gesture.

The 2012 delegate for Newt Gingrich said he was frustrated by how the mainstream media continues to put out the narrative that the president and his administration are hostile to LGBT individuals and their human rights.

“It is a conflagration of confirmation bias that liberals have about the Trump administration working at all times and in all ways against LGBT individuals—and a media that is obsessed with clickbait headlines and getting clicks rather than getting the story right.”
