Trump Addresses Family Research Council Hate Groups Values Voter Summit – Video
Donald Trump has addressed the annual conference of the anti-LGBT group the Family Research Council which has been classified as a hate group.
Richard Cohen, the president of the Southern Poverty Law Centre, condemned President Trump’s decision to address the event. “By appearing at the Values Voter Summit, President Trump is lending the legitimacy of his office to a hate group that relentlessly demonizes LGBT people and works to deny them of their equal rights,” he told The Independent.
The event, which counts religious extremists, white supremacists, and far-right activists among its attendees, will also include speeches from former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and former White House aide Sebastian Gorka.
