HRC’s Chad Griffin: Trump ‘Is No Friend to the LGBT Community’

‘It’s shameful and disgusting what Donald Trump did today and what he said today’

GRIFFIN: "He is no friend to the LGBT community. He is no friend. And at a moment like this when a leader should put their personal ambitions and their partisan differences aside, or just shut up, but if they choose to speak out, they should be speaking from a place of unity and a place of sympathy and talking about building bridges. And I would tell you, Wolf, I bet there is not a single family member or friend or brother or sister or girlfriend or boyfriend that is suffering from this great loss that found any comfort in what Donald Trump had to say today. Instead, he was up there bragging about the fact that he claims he predicted this. And let me say one other thing LGBTQ people, we are Muslims, we are women, we are Latinos. We are as diverse as the fabric of this nation. And, Wolf, any attack on any one of us is an attack on all of us. And it’s shameful and disgusting what Donald Trump did today and what he said today. And I hope he says not another word about it."
