Once again Trump plays to his voting base - haters.


Donald Trump to become first president to speak at anti-LGBT hate group's annual summit

Donald Trump is to address the annual conference of an anti-LGBT group which has been classified as a hate group.

The US president will become the first sitting president to address social conservative activists and elected officials at the Value Voters Summit in Washington DC on Friday.

President Trump has addressed the event which is hosted by the Family Research Council three times in total and did so last year as the Republican presidential candidate.

The Family Research Council opposes and actively lobbies against equal rights for LGBT persons. The conservative Christian group campaigns against same-sex marriage, same-sex civil unions, LGBT adoption, abortion, embryonic stell-cell research, pornography and divorce.

Every year the conference sparks controversy for its choice of speakers and in 2010 the Southern Poverty Law Centre, a legal advocacy organisation which specialise in civil rights, went so far as to classify the Family Research Council as an anti-gay 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.

"His appearance puts the lie to his campaign promise to be a friend to the LGBT community. Bigotry is not an American value, and our president should speak out against it.”

I build houses for the wealthy and by no large measure do I rely on fedral, state or local government funding for income or retirement.

So who is Trump playing?

well certainly not you, sir - from your job the assumption is those much worse off than you

but then again, perhaps he did play you, Contractor, assuming you get your own health insurance through a health insurance company that, as of today also, will lose people paying into your pool who will choose Trump's new cheaper plans with much less coverages, thereby depriving your pool of their money and causing your own monthly payments to go up sharply, so says the healthcare analysts


The good news, if that’s the way to put it, is many health plans have already accounted for Trump pulling the CSR payments in their 2018 rates. So people ineligible for subsidies are going to see higher premiums next year because of Trump’s threats, but that was already true before he formally decided to end the payments.

According to Axios, about 6.7 million people bought Obamacare-compliant coverage without subsidies, either on the law’s marketplaces or off them. Those are the people feeling the pain from this uncertainty.

Hell bent to erase the black man's legacy. He will throw anyone under the bus to do it. He looked like a complete racist idiot with his "birther" crusade, and this is his "pay back" for being made to look like a fool. Nothing but a selfish, obese, heartless bastard feeding his deformed "tween" ego, and dragging this country through the shitter in the process.

Contractor, I am profiting from the stock market and real estate boom as well. But I am slowly cashing in the profits because Trump's erratic behavior will eventually destabilize the economy.

Spot on, Sthlbro.

Norton, poor comprehension on my post and my politics in general-sir! Haha.

I have Kaiser and pay part of my Superintendent's insurance by choice. I'm healthy and have a decent income so my insurance went up under Obamacare to help make up the cost of the elimination of "pre-existing conditions" for others, as I understand the increase- which I'm fine with.

The point I'm making is that I and other progressives here are willing to pay extra and work harder to help our fellow man.

Trump's economic plan and his intensions are to favor a sliver of society at the detriment of many. My reference, as to "being played" was to Werner, who I assume at one time, was paid in part by the state or some government agency- Perhaps I'm wrong there.

Do you say "in part" because he posted on supertopo all day instead of working?

+1 for Contractor. More compassion and empathy will make this a better country. Hate and intolerance will be our downfall.

yes, a big +1 for Contractor

And today Trump was invited to speak to the "values Voters"

who had no problem at all kissing and ring and honoring his three marriages, 3000 business lawsuits, his now closed charity, his now closed University who was ordered by a judge to pay back 25 million dollars to those he defrauded, five military deferments, four business bankruptcies, and his speech grabbing women by the.... values speaker indeed

Not one peep from the Loonitards here about their fallen hero Winesteen.

Hillary scrubbed the whinesteen intro to her latest dismal book at the last second.

Hanoi Jane is getting out in front of it tho admitting she knew all along about the rapes.....and she's so soooooory for keeping her yap shut for once.
