Tiffany Trump hit the campaign trail in Florida this weekend to stump for her father at a “Trump Pride” event.

“I know what my father believes in. Prior to politics, he supported gays, lesbians, the LGBQIIA+ community,” the recent Georgetown Law graduate said, leaving out the “T” in the initialism.
“It saddens me. I have friends of mine who reach out and they say … ‘How could you support your father? We know you. We know your best friends are gay.’ … I say, ‘It’s because my father has always supported all of you,’” she continued. “He’s never done it for politics and he’s not doing it for politics.”

After videos of the speech surfaced online, Tiffany Trump began trending on Twitter, sparking mixed reactions from users of the social media platform.
Many poked fun at the footage, commenting on the animated nature of the speech.
I voted Biden but since Tiffany Trump hit the campaign trail I want my ballot back I’ve changed my mind.

“Hopefully, like, the Trump genes run in me and I can just go up off script like my father likes to do, and honestly I love it when he gets off script,” she said.
Trump supporters were quick to claim that Hunter Biden should be trending, however, not Tiffany.
Amazing how Hunter Biden’s name has never trended as high as Tiffany Trump’s. She went to law school while he was kicked out of the Navy for being a crackhead and through nepotism, not hard work, mired his dad’s campaign in scandal via Burisma.

“When you don’t speak and you do remain silent — and I used to think that was a strength, but when you don’t they create their own narrative,” she said. “So now I’m here to speak to you.”
