Apparently Donald Trump is being urged to dance with Caitlyn Jenner at his inaugural ball…
UNPOPULAR: The incoming president of the US, Donald Trump is very unpopular with the LGBT community. Will a dance with Caitlyn Jenner mend bridges?
In a move some are suggesting might prove that he is “in touch” with the LGBT community, President-elect Donald Trump is apparently being urged to dance with trans star Caitlyn Jenner.
Many LGBT advocates are fearful of the backward steps a Trump administration might mean for the LGBT community in the US over the next four years, with some fearing that gay marriage could be repealed once he comes into power. Trump has said that same-sex marriage is “fine” with him.
The Daily Mail is reporting that his advisors believe that a dance with one of America’s most visible trans stars could build bridges with the community.
REPUBLICAN BEAU: Caitlyn Jenner was a supporter of the Republican party before she transitioned. She is reportedly attending the inaugural ball, but not as an official invite by the President Elect.
Speaking to pagesix.com a member of the incoming administration said that image of Donald dancing with Caitlyn was a “brilliant idea”.
Richard Johnson reports that the Republican aide said,
“The image of Trump dancing with Caitlyn would send a strong message that he supports gay rights and trans rights,” the Republican said. “A picture is worth a thousand tweets.”
Caitlyn’s publicists hasn’t confirmed whether the star would be up for a dance… saying,
“Can’t deal in hypotheticals. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
