Delta Foundation draws criticism after Trump-related Facebook post


A screenshot of Delta's now-deleted Facebook post.



The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh, the region's largest LGBTQ advocacy organization, came under fire today after posting a link on Facebook showing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “LGBTQ FOR TRUMP” over a rainbow. Delta asked in the post, “Anyone wearing one to Pride?”

The post linked to the campaign of President Donald Trump’s online store.

The post immediately drew criticism on social media. Many commentators viewed it as an endorsement of Trump, particularly with the inclusion of the link for ease of purchase. The post came on the same day the Trump Administration rolled back nondiscrimination health-care protections for transgender patients. The administration has also banned trans people from serving in the military.

Following the outcry, the Delta Foundation then edited its post to include the question, “Anyone think it’s odd he asks for our support after his continual attacks and lack of support for equality for our community?”

2. No pro-LGBT org would endorse Trump

This is either a troll by Delta, or they're trying accommodate all points of view - even wrong ones.
