Chechnya is an autonomous region of Russia brutally ruled by crime mobs under Kadyrov's control. Kadyrov himself was hand-picked by anti-LGBT Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin to run Chechnya. Putin, of course, has also persecuted LGBT Russians in his own right.
The Obama Administration had long condemned both Kadyrov and Putin for their LGBT persecution. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has repeatedly praised Putin, whose disciple Kadyrov is running gay concentration camps.
If Trump was truly a friend of the LGBT community, as his administration and some supporters have claimed, he would speak out against LGBT persecution like this. President Obama did. Why is Trump silent?
His refusal to speak out is yet another reason why his claims of being pro-LGBT are nothing short of ludicrous.
