As Pride month approaches and corporations get in on the Pride action with rainbow-colored products galore, Donald Trump has now unveiled his own Pride merchandise.

The shirt, described as an “exclusive equality tee,” features the words “LGBTQ for Trump” written in white font over a rainbow background. The T-shirts are available in sizes S to 3XL and retail for $24.

In 2016, Trump vowed that he would “do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology.”

However, after taking office the Trump administration wiped any mention of LGBT rights from the White House website. As his days in office ticked by, Trump issued a transgender military ban; the White House ignored World AIDS Day; proposed a budget cut to global HIV programs; and proposed to roll back protections for transgender people in health care.

The irony behind Trump selling Pride T-shirts despite attacking LGBTQ rights wasn’t lost on some LGBTQ advocates who took to social media to denounce the product.
