Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) gave a speech recently at the Human Rights Campaign. During her speech she insisted that LGTBQ society would be overcome with anger because of President Trump and the GOP’s “arrogance and bigotry.”
Gillibrand proclaimed, “When President Trump looks at our transgender troops as valueless and when his party tries to demonize this boy and every other like him this arrogance and bigotry will provoke a fury in me that will not subside and I am not alone. Every time hate has shown his face marching down the streets of Charlottesville, asking for ID’s on buses and trains and even sitting behind the resolute desk you have shown up you have stood up and you have fought back.”
She continued saying that to pass The Equality Act a new President would have to be selected. “We know this president will never sign the Equality Act, to ensure the civil rights of LGBTQ Americans. He has neither the decency nor the empathy to do so,” Gillibrand said.
She also said, “With a Democratic majority in the House and Senate, we can create the momentum that we need for a new president to sign that bipartisan bill in 2020.”
