Trump’s verbal sexual assault on women condemned by the National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund



Washington, DC, October 7, 2016—A video released today shows GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump using lewd, sexist and misogynistic language about women. In response, the National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund released the following statement.

“This verbal sexual assault by Donald Trump on women is truly horrifying — and so revealing about his mindset. We’ve seen for months how his hate-filled rhetoric has contributed to violent attacks against people of color. We’ve watched him disparage Mexicans, vilify Muslims, dehumanize people with disabilities, perpetuate negative stereotypes of LGBTQ people, and exploit people’s fears and anxiety, all the while encouraging physical violence against anyone who challenges his bigotry. Enough is enough: We call on all elected officials and politicians, regardless of their party political affiliation, to unequivocally condemn Donald Trump’s blatant sexism and misogyny,” said Rea Carey, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund Executive Director.
