Trump's e-store selling Pride tees

Pride month is coming up in June for the third time since Trump has held the office of the U.S. president, and even though he has never come out and ceremoniously declared June as Pride month as presidents have done before him, his online store is offering rainbow inspired tees

The "equality tee" has the familiar colors of Pride with the words "LGBTQ for Trump" over the top, they are available in sizes S to 3XL for $24.

Some people are confused as to why the shirts are being sold on the Trump site, they say despite the supportive words, he and his administration have done nothing but strip the community of their rights and freedoms. 

Tweeted Buzzfeed Deputy Editor David Mack: "Trump — who banned trans troops, is against LGBT employment protections, wants ppl to be able to turn away LGBT customers, & is denying citizenship to kids of US gay couples born out of wedlock — is selling LGBTQ for Trump shirts for Pride."

During his time on the 2016 campaign trail, the former real estate magnate said he would, “do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology [Islamic radicals].”

The Trump administration has yet to make any real improvements to the community, in fact, some are pointing out that the opposite is true. 

In early April they implemented a ban on trans men and women serving in the military, said they don't endorse the Equality Act and recently proposed a plan that trans folks could be turned away from federally-funded homeless shelters. 

“This is a heartless attack on some of the most vulnerable people in our society," Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, said in a statement to USA Today Wednesday. "The programs impacted by this rule are life-saving for transgender people, particularly youth rejected by their families, and a lack of stable housing fuels the violence and abuse that takes the lives of many transgender people of color across the country."
