On Friday, Twitter was abuzz about one of the items in Donald Trump's official online store: An "LGBTQ For Trump" shirt. Trump is the first GOP nominee to sell apparel specifically targeted for LGBT voters.
Pretty sure this is a first for a GOP store. pic.twitter.com/7JJ9e55zfZ— Andrew Clark (@AndrewHClark) August 26, 2016
Given that Hillary Clinton's foundation has accepted funds from countries who outlaw homosexuality, this is new push to attract LGBT voters. Gay Trump supporters say that they support the candidate's emphasis on gun rights as well as his promises to prohibit immigrants from countries where gay rights are nonexistent.
Regardless, Trump's expanded line of campaign apparel could be a sign that the GOP is working to expand its traditional voter base.
