Liberal group launches anti-Trump dating site
A liberal group has launched a dating site for critics of President Trump to counter a similar site for the president’s supporters that went live last month.
The group, a political startup called American Liberal Council (ALC), describes site NeverTrump.Dating as “an all-inclusive, love-pairing dating site for those who oppose and resist President Donald Trump.”
The website was “made with progressives, independents, disillusioned Republicans, and the LGBT community in mind,” according to a press release from ALC.
Ted Brown, the founder of ALC, said in a statement that NeverTrump allows like-minded individuals to ban together in opposition to “the corrupt, morally-bankrupt administration in power.”
“Our Democracy can still be saved,” he said. “But in order to do so, we must join together those with like-minded beliefs and stand for tolerance and justice for all. We need allies who will never back down to the corrupt, morally-bankrupt administration in power – and we can do that right here.”
The website is a response to a pro-Trump dating site, Trump.Dating, launched last month. That site came under fire because it only allowed users to register as either a “straight man” or a “straight woman,” CNN reported.
The pro-Trump site also faced scrutiny after it was reported that a man whose photo greeted users on the site is a convicted sex offender. The photo has since been taken down.
