They say the "radical left" continues to "distort President Trump’s record and mischaracterize his policy agenda."
The Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) released a statement on Friday announcing that they are endorsing Donald J. Trump for president in 2020.
LCR is the nation’s oldest and largest organization of conservative LGBTQ Republicans and their allies.
With votes gathered from over 50 chapters in 21 states, the organization says they are proud to back the 45th president in the next election.
In a statement, some LCR officials explained their decisions.
"Log Cabin Republicans is proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for reelection as President. He has delivered on his commitment to govern from a place of inclusion, and he has addressed significant policy areas important to our community. President Trump's commitment to end the spread of HIV/AIDS in 10 years and his initiative to end the criminalization of homosexuality internationally are bold yet achievable goals of great importance of the LGBTQ community. His policy agenda has benefited not just LGBTQ individuals but all Americans, and for that, he deserves four more years of leadership in the Oval Office."
Robert Kabel – Chairman, Log Cabin Republicans
“We are excited to work with our colleagues at the Trump for President campaign and the Republican National Committee to be a part of the President’s reelection campaign. Our strong relationship continues to ensure that our distinct voice is represented in the GOP and that our community’s interests are heard and respected at the highest level. LGBTQ equality is a bipartisan effort and we will continue to work to elect Republican candidates who share our values.”
Jill Homan – Vice-Chairman, Log Cabin Republicans
“The radical left continues to distort President Trump’s record and mischaracterize his policy agenda. Log Cabin Republicans stands against their campaign of disinformation, demonization and the usual scare tactics employed to keep the LGBTQ community hostage in the Democratic Party. Starting early, LogCabin Republicans will bring together the diverse spectrum of conservative LGBTQ individuals to inform and activate in advance of the 2020 general election, and provide a space for disenfranchised independents and Democrats to learn about the inclusive conservatism in the Republican Party.”
Charles T. Moran – Board Member & National Spokesman
In an op-ed written by Robert Kabel and Jill Homan of the Log Cabin Republicans for the Washington Post, they say:
"While we do not agree with every policy or platform position presented by the White House or the Republican Party, we share a commitment to individual responsibility, personal freedom and a strong national defense.".
