Trump spokesperson tweeted in 2012: ‘Gay is not normal’

US presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has a new problem with the LGBTI community.

A tweet by the Republican presidential nominee’s national spokeswoman from 2012 has resurfaced and does not help Trump’s attempts to convince LGBTI voters that he is better for them than Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Katrina Pierson tweeted four years ago: ‘Gay is not normal, accept that,’ according to BuzzFeed News.

Pierson’s tweet came during an exchange over same-sex marriage in which she also wrote: ‘You will never for acceptance, but you could win coexistence.’

Same-sex marriage became legal in all 50 US states in June of 2015 through a ruling by the Supreme Court.

In response to her tweet resurfacing, Pierson said it was a ‘long reach’ to go back four years and accused BuzzFeed of creating ‘a new hit piece and call it relevant.’

She added: ‘It’s quite common that Twitter is a platform to promote/defend the policies and values of the candidates at the time. Many times, it’s about engaging trolls which can lead to humorous and sarcastic banter.’
