‘Not ever’

Hillary Clinton criticizes Trump on LGBT issues

April 21, 2017

At a dinner for an LGBTQ organization this Thursday, Hillary Clinton did not mince words when it came to the Trump administration’s handling of LGBTQ issues. “I think we have to face the fact that we may not ever be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues,” the former Democratic presidential nominee said, warning that any progress made on these issues might not be “as secure as we once expected.” Clinton specifically pointed to Trump’s appointments of outspoken anti-LGBTQ people in his administration. In her speech, Clinton also discussed the “terrifying accounts” of alleged abuse of gay men in Chechnya, asking the U.S. government to “demand an end to the persecution of innocent people across the world.”

Earlier this month, Clinton appeared at the 8th Annual Women in the World New York Summit, where she sat down with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof for her first interview since the 2016 presidential election. Responding to a question about how she had been coping with the election loss, Clinton said, “As a person, I’m OK. As an American, I’m pretty worried.” If you missed the discussion, which went on for nearly 50 minutes and covered an array of topics, watch highlights and the full interview below.
