On Friday, Donald Trump is scheduled to speak at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, DC. The summit is known to be comprised of religious zealots, white supremacists, and other far-right activists.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, who was recently shot during a mass shooting incident in DC, plans to speak at the event. Scalise has drawn extra criticism for planning to attend the event since a lesbian police officer saved his life. Scalise noted that the shooting has not changed his outlook on LGBT rights or gun control.

Also appearing will be Duck Dynasty star, Phil Robertson, who in the past has mentioned that he wishes to “rid the Earth” of “wicked” gays.




President of the Family Research Council, Tony Perkins, seemed thrilled in a statement regarding Trump’s attendance. It read “Last year, he spoke to the Values Voter Summit as a candidate — this year, it will be as the 45th President of the United States. Today we have confirmation from the White House that President Donald Trump will speak to the VVS crowd this Friday morning.”

Perkins also made a reference to Obama.

“Values voters are coming to our nation’s capital thankful to hear from a president who is fulfilling the promises that he campaigned on. Since the early days of the campaign, President Trump allied himself with values voters, promising to put an end to the 8 years of relentless assault on the First Amendment.”




Ironically, in spite of the anti-LGBT nature of the event, personal ads for anonymous gay sex have a history of increasing around the event area. Reports indicate that the gay male anonymous hookup site, Grindr, becomes full of men looking for “whites only” near the hotel where the event is taking place.
