Cher: If Trump Wins Re-election, He’ll Put LGBTQ People ‘In Internment Camps’: This is nuts for two reasons
Cher seems to have been traumatized for about 35 years now and it just keeps getting sadder and sadder. Now the only way the pop icon can get any attention at all is to go on the attack against Donald Trump and his supporters. But this time she has a new conspiracy theory which is beyond even her rubber room: She is saying that Trump intends to put gay people in “internment camps.”
Not only that, it was in reaction to a BuzzFeed story reporting that Donald Trump has become the first U.S. president to recognize LGBTQ Pride month.
“Trump’s 1st Republican Pres.2 Acknowledge LGBT Pride Month. IF trump WINS 2020,HE’LL BE 1ST 2 STRIP U OF’ALL’PROTECTIONS,& PUT U IN INTERNMENT CAMPS‼️HE’LL PUT HIS✋ON UR SHOULDER & STICK HISIN UR BACK.WAKE UP & SMELL PAIN,HIS BASE WANTS U GONE,” Cher said.

Trump made history by being the first president to acknowledge LGBT Pride month, but only because he wants to get re-elected and put them in camps? Cher needs evaluation at the very least. No wonder her daughter is so confused – so are we. Here’s Trump:
“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!”
The tweet came exactly one week after Trump’s administration unveiled a proposal to rescind nondiscrimination protections for transgender people under the Affordable Care Act. Also last week, the administration finalized one rule allowing medical workers to refuse to treat trans people based on religious objections, while drafting another that would allow homeless shelters to turn away transgender individuals.
During the presidential campaign, Trump presented himself as something of an LGBT ally. “Believe me, I am better for the gay community, I am better for women than [Clinton] will ever be on her best day,” he said in Raleigh, North Carolina, on July 5, 2016. “Ask yourself who is really the friend of women and the LGBT community, Donald Trump with actions or Hillary Clinton with her words?” he said in Manchester, New Hampshire, on June 13 of that same year. He also made history by becoming the first GOP presidential nominee to mention the LGBT community in his convention acceptance speech. Just last week, the president was selling $24 LGBTQ for Trump rainbow shirts to fundraise for his reelection.
Presidents routinely use their executive powers to issue symbolic proclamations to mark days, weeks, or months they deem to be of national value. They can also release statements through the White House press office.
Breitbart News entertainment editor Jerome Hudson notes:
In February, the Trump administration launched a worldwide campaign to decriminalize homosexuality. The initiative is being spearheaded by U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, whom Trump nominated for the post and who is among the highest-ranking openly gay officials ever to serve in the U.S. government.
