Get the Facts: Donald Trump’s Record on LGBT Issues Spells Trouble

by Maureen McCarty March 01, 2016


Tonight, 12 states will hold caucuses and primaries that will dramatically alter the Presidential campaign landscape. For some, today could mean the end of their journey to the White House. For others, they’ll receive the necessary boost to break ahead of the pack. For the Republican party, frontrunner Donald Trump is the one to beat. For the LGBT community, a Trump nomination could spell big trouble.

In recent months Trump has:

  • Told Fox News Sunday he would appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would reverse nationwide marriage equality.
  • When asked to clarify by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Trump refused to say he would defend marriage equality.
  • Agreed to support the so-called “First Amendment Defense Act,” which would lead to more Kim Davis-like discrimination across the country.
  • Told CBN’s David Brody that evangelical voters can “trust me” to oppose marriage equality.
  • Would commit to religious liberty as an “absolute litmus test, not just to the Supreme Court, but to all courts.”

We need an LGBT advocate in the White House. That’s why HRC is standing with Hillary Clinton for President.
