Trump wins close election



Washington, DC, November 9, 2016—With the majority of states now declared, Donald Trump has been projected to win the Presidency of the United States. In response, the National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund is releasing the following statement:

“Millions of people here and around the world will be shocked, disappointed and frankly frightened by the election of Donald Trump. His remarks over the course of the campaign including his sexist, racist, and xenophobic comments, as well as his mocking of people with disabilities and his dehumanization of Muslims leave many of us deeply disturbed. Make no mistake about it, this will also give us a roadmap for fair-minded, moral, compassionate people to come together like never before and fight. It will take longer, it will be harder, but rest assured that united and working in partnership with people of good conscience, we will get there,” said Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund.
