Robert Jeffress, the pastor at First Baptist Church in Dallas, on Thursday tweeted a photo of himself with Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

In the photo, Trump and Jeffress are seen giving a thumbs up.

“Honored to pray for my friend, @realDonaldTrump, at tonight's Dallas rally,” Jeffress messaged.

The tweet, which Trump also posted on his account, came amid claims from Trump that he's a better friend to the LGBT community than Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

But Jeffress is openly hostile to gay rights. In 2013, he compared gay sex – which he's called a sin – to plugging in a U.S. television into a European outlet. He's also claimed that marriage rights for gay couples would lead to a government crackdown on Christian radio stations. Two years later, he warned that allowing openly gay adult scout leaders would hurt the Boy Scouts of America. Most recently, he chided businesses that support LGBT rights.

“[W]hen states are being faced with the loss of business, they tend to fold real quickly. And I've said often that the greatest threat to freedom of religion in America is not ISIS, it's the Chamber of Commerce. I mean, it's the businesses that say to our representatives, 'Oh, don't pass laws like that. Don't pass these religious freedom laws because people will interpret that as anti-gay and we'll lose business,'” he said.
