Democratic presidential candidate
Hillary Clinton told a crowd in Florida on Sunday that her GOP rival
has a “terrible” record on LGBT rights.
Clinton made her remarks at a rally at
a gay nightclub in Wilton Manors.
“Donald Trump has a terrible record
on LGBT rights,” Clinton told the crowd at the Manor Complex. “And
this election will determine whether we continue the progress we've
made or let it be ripped away.”
“We know Trump has promised he'll
appoint Supreme Court justices who will overturn marriage equality.
And that he will repeal President Obama's executive actions to
protect LGBT people from discrimination.”
Clinton, who spoke for about 30
minutes, added that as president she would “call on the Congress to
pass the Equality Act,” a stalled bill that would extend LGBT
protections to employment, housing and public accommodations.
“We will then be able to protect LGBT
Americans from discrimination in all aspects of our lives. We'll
work together to achieve the AIDS-free generation that is within our
reach,” she said to thunderous applause.
