Gregory T. Angelo, president of the Log Cabin Republicans, vowed on Thursday to protect LGBT rights as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office.

While Trump's rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton, swept the LGBT vote (78%), 14 percent of the LGBT community cast their votes for Trump, according to election data released by The New York Times. That's a lower percentage than in previous election cycles. For example, Mitt Romney received 22 percent of the LGBT vote in 2012.

LGBT Republicans who supported Trump argued that he was the party's most inclusive candidate to date.

The LGBT GOP group withheld its endorsement of Trump, saying that they weren't convinced that a Trump administration would protect LGBT rights. (The national group set aside their policy of not allowing local chapters to endorse national candidates, resulting in a handful of endorsements from local chapters.)

Angelo excoriated the LGBT Left for “demonizing Donald Trump and fundraising off of bogeymen.”

“I can't say it's surprising – what else can they do now? After working for decades against Republicans rather than with them and putting all their faith into the failed candidacy of Hillary Clinton, purportedly 'non-partisan' LGBT advocacy groups now face GOP majorities in the House and Senate, and a Republican in the White House for the next 4 – or perhaps even EIGHT – years,” Angelo wrote in a fundraising letter to supporters.

Angelo claimed that despite budgets in the millions, such groups “don't have a single point of contact in the incoming Trump administration” but Log Cabin Republicans does.

“Log Cabin Republicans will continue to work for full equality on behalf of all LGBT Americans. That's my vow, and it's why I'm writing to you tonight,” he added.
