Donald Trump was the guest of an anti-LGBT summit.

He spoke at a summit of an anti-LGBT group organized by the anti-LGBT Heritage Foundation, which took place on October 17.

This is the second summit of an anti-LGBT group in which President Trump participates.

Last month, he had attended a Family Research Council's summit. Its leader, Tony Perkins, compared gay people to Nazis.

At this first summit, Trump said he was "honored and thrilled to be the first sitting president to address this gathering of friends, so many friends."

He added: “I pledged that in a Trump administration, our heritage would be cherished, protected and defended like you have never seen before.

“To protect religious liberty, including protecting groups like this one, I signed a new executive action in a beautiful ceremony in the White House on our national day of prayer.

“Among many historic steps, the executive order followed through on one of my most important campaign promises, important to so many of you.

“To prevent the horrendous Johnson Amendment interfering with your First Amendment rights.

“We will not allow government workers to censor sermons or target our pastors, our ministers, our rabbis.

“These are the people we want to hear from and they’re not going to be silenced any longer.”

Heritage Foundation had thus said that "Heritage has been instrumental in providing the Trump administration with sound policy advice and experts who now serve in key government positions."

To see Trump participating in an anti-LGBT summit is not suprising. Members of the anti-LGBT heritage foundation represent the perfect audience for Trump.
