Clinton zings Trump over LGBT support
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Thursday night sparred over their respective support for members of the LGBT community days after a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando.
“LGBT is starting to like Donald Trump very much lately, I will tell you, starting to like Donald Trump very, very much lately,” Trump said during a rally in Dallas.
Trump went after donations to the Clinton Foundation from countries with poor human rights records, mentioning Saudi Arabia.
“They kill gays in these countries,” Trump said, touching on a theme he’s used this week. “So you tell me who’s better for the gay community and who’s better for women than Donald Trump?”
Clinton, who has made support for LGBT people a component of her campaign since announcing her candidacy in a video last year, interjected on Twitter to respond to a CNN reporter who quoted Trump.
