CLEVELAND, Ohio–Donald Trump thanked the crowd at the Republican National Convention for cheering for the protection of the gay population from Islamic radical terrorism.
“As your president I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from a hateful foreign ideology…believe me,” Trump vowed to major applause.
“And I have to say, as a Republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said. Thank you.”
The diverse crowd at the Republican convention in Cleveland comes from all walks of life. Trump also appealed in his speech to the wages of black and Hispanic workers, which have been lowered by illegal immigration.
Trump blasted a media that seeks to “divide us by race and color” and said that “this administration has failed America’s inner cities. It’s failed them on education, it’s failed them on jobs, it’s failed them on crime.”
