Donald Trump brushes off concerns about ‘death to gays’ Republican candidate

  • TwitterFacebookRedditEmail

Donald Trump has rebuffed concerns about a Republican candidate for the US Senate who believes gay people should be jailed.

Roy Moore has been picked as the Republican candidate ahead of a special election for the US Senate seat vacated by Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions, despite a string of controversies surrounding his abhorrent views about LGBT rights.

Moore has compared gay sex to bestiality, saying: “Just because it’s done behind closed doors, it can still be prohibited by state law Do you know that bestiality, the relationship between man and beast is prohibited in every state? It’s the same thing.”

It has also revealed that he has appeared multiple times on a radio show hosted by pastor Kevin Swanson, who is known for preaching that gay people must be stoned to death. Moore himself has dodged questions about whether gay people should be put to death.
