Would you like Melania Trump to speak out in support of LGBT rights?


David Alexander Jenkins

“Yes. I think she owes the people who have dressed her and styled her the support that they’ve given to her. I’ve met her several times. I can’t imagine her saying anything negative about LGBT rights.”

Lillian Mento

“It would be of no consequence to me. I’m only interested in the opinions of people I respect. When I consider LGBT issues, she’s not on my list of influential people. She doesn’t seem like someone who speaks her own mind."

Rodney Perkins
dispatcher | South Philadelphia
“I think it would be a nice gesture for her to do. But I don’t think it would be very meaningful. She’s not committed to the role of First Lady. She doesn’t seem to care about public issues. So I’d question her authenticity.”

“I’d appreciate the sentiment. But I hate all the Trumps. I think it would just make me feel frustrated and upset. Actions speak louder than words. All the Trumps would have to work very hard on the [LGBT] issues to convince me of their sincerity.”
