Much like we saw in 2016, projections in the final days of the 2020 election suggest that President Donald Trump and his supporters may be in for a long night.

At the same time, there are indications that the president is seeing high levels of support in the black community, as well as strong support in some Hispanic precincts. And now the gay community is also coming on board, according to former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell.


Appointed by Trump, Grenell was the first openly gay cabinet member in American history and he also served as the U.S. Ambassador to Germany. He took to Twitter on Sunday to say that the gay left is in a “total panic” over the “unprecedented” support Trump is enjoying from the LGBT community.

“Support for @realDonaldTrump from the gay community is unprecedented for any Republican in history. We will see huge numbers – more than 33% support. The gay left is in total panic,” he tweeted.

With Grenell’s assist, the Trump campaign has been making a concerted effort to reach out to the gay community.

A “Trump Pride” event was held Thursday in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and again Saturday in Minnesota.

Grenell will be joined Sunday by the president’s youngest daughter, Tiffany Trump, at a “Trump Pride” event in Washington County, Pa.

Trump received just 14% of the LGBTQ vote in 2016, according to The Michigan Daily, which means if Grenell is correct in that the president now has more than 33% support, this is a huge swing in his favor.

Adam Schmidt, former U.S. national team figure skater and an LGBTQ+ Trump supporter, opened the event in Ann Arbor and he said the Democratic Party is a party of exclusion, the Daily reported.

“They are the party of exclusion; they are cancel culture; they’re the opposite of inclusivity, all right,” he said. “We are the party of inclusivity.”

Here’s a sampling of reactions to the story from Twitter:
