As election day approaches Melania Trump showed her support for her husband by taking to Twitter to praise some of his policies in support of the LGBTQ community.

However, her statement calling out others for slandering her Donald Trump’s efforts were simply incorrect, according to CNN.

Melania shared a video on Twitter, in which she claimed, “many enemies in the political establishment” have spread lies suggesting her husband opposes gay rights.

“I was shocked to discover that some of these powerful people have tried to paint my husband as anti-gay or against equality. Nothing could be further from the truth,” she stated.

While Melania insisted the allegations about her husband were false, a fact check by CNN suggests she is misinforming the public about where her husband stands in the LGBTQ community.

In 2015, a then-candidate Trump told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he didn’t support same-sex marriages.

“I’m just for traditional marriage,” he said at the time.

However, it wasn’t the first time Trump admitted he was against gay marriages. “I just don’t feel good about it. I don’t feel right about it. I’m against it and I take a lot of heat because I come from New York,” he told Bill O'Reilly in 2011.

“You know, for New York, it’s like, how can you be against gay marriage? But I’m opposed to gay marriage,” he added.

In the past, members of the LGBTQ community, who initially endorsed Trump, have since pulled their support from the Republican candidate. 

In 2018, Catelyn Jenner admitted that she was wrong to believe Trump wanted to help the  LGBTQ community.

“Sadly, I was wrong. The reality is that the trans community is being relentlessly attacked by this president...He has ignored our humanity,” she stated in a column published in the Washington Post.

“He has insulted our dignity. He has made trans people into political pawns as he whips up animus against us in an attempt to energize the most right-wing segment of his party.”

The former athlete has since changed her political views to be “economically conservative, socially progressive.”
