Donald Trump has never been an advocate of same-sex marriage but he makes an exception
US President Donald Trump ahead of the India visit supported a Bollywood movie based on two gays, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan on Friday night. Donald Trump retweeted the tweet of Peter Tatchell, a human rights campaigner, best known for his work for LGBT social movements. Trump lauded the tweet and wrote ‘Great’ in the retweet.
People on Twitter are confused from the response from Donald Trump and are giving interesting opinions on Twitter.
Here are some of them
Thank you, President Trump, for supporting the gay community.— #ThePersistence (@ScottPresler) February 21, 2020
I can’t wait to vote for you this November.
I hate the way the lefties try to paint you as anti-LGBTQ. You’re just for HUMAN rights, not dozens of separate “victim” groups rights. That is a healthy and correct way to approach things, imho.— Isabeau Mann (@IsabeauMann) February 21, 2020
Trump, Modi govt built a wall to impress you. We are also spending 500,000$ on flowers for you. Indian taxpayers are paying for all of it.— Srivatsa (@srivatsayb) February 21, 2020
Why don't you and modi drain the swamp and sign a trade deal?!
It is wonderful that it is branching out to other countries, so that the violence towards gay people stops.— Dr. Dawn Michael💗 (@SexCounseling) February 21, 2020
Your quote tweeting a guy that wanted sexual consent lowered to 14 ( currently 16 in UK ) and that once said this..— Adam Brooks (@EssexPR) February 21, 2020
'not all sex involving children is unwanted, abusive and harmful',
Republicans are working to improve the lives of all Americans. It doesn’t matter what race you are or what your sexual orientation is. Republicans want you to win and have a great life!— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) February 21, 2020

Donald now a full time movie critic? Doesn't Trump have a real job?— ⭐️ Merrill – sheltering at home ⭐️ (@MerrillLynched) February 21, 2020
People are confused because Donald Trump has never been an advocate of same-sex marriage. In 2000, he said that ‘marriage is between a man and a woman’. In 2016, Trump had said that if he wins the election, he will appoint Supreme Court Justices who will overturn the 2015 decision of same-sex marriage. However, after getting appointed as the President of US, Trump took a U-turn and said that he was fine with same-sex marriage.
Ayyushman Khurana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan released on 21st February and is receiving a positive word of mouth. After the trump’s tweet, the film has got international recognition.
The film is based on same-sex marriage and deals with two young gay couples who have to go through the family drama to stay together. The film also stars TVF fame- Jitendra Kumar, also known as ‘Jeetu’ in important role. The movie garnered more than 9 crores on day one of its release. Notably, it is released with Vicky Kaushal starrer Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship.
This is not the first time when Bollywood has tried its hand on a rom-com gay film commercially. Earlier, Dostana starring Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra talked about the same topic was a massive success amongst moviegoers. Kapoor & Sons also threw light on the gay couples and became a successful venture for Dharma productions.
