Hillary Clinton Slams Trump on LGBT Rights

Shares

Hillary Clinton recently spoke at The LGBT Center in New York about LGBT rights.  She warned,

“The progress that we fought for, that many of you were on the front lines of, and that we’ve celebrated and maybe even taken for granted, may not be as secure as we once expected.”

Clinton also spoke on the situation in Chechnya, where simply the existence of gay people, can get them tortured and killed.

“In recent weeks, we’ve heard terrifying accounts from Chechnya of gay and bisexual men being taken from their homes and families, tortured, even killed. And when government authorities were confronted with these reports, their response was chilling. They said that you cannot arrest or repress people – who do not exist. The United States government — yes, this government — should demand an end to the persecution of innocent people.”

Then Hillary spoke on Trump,

“I think we have to face the fact that we may never be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues…I know that the election hit a lot of us hard. But I can tell you this: Even when it feels tempting to pull the covers over your head, please keep going.”
