Speaking at the last week's event, Trump, who has previously said that he would protect LGBT Americans from "hateful foreign ideology", said: “I wanted to thank our host, Tony Perkins, for his years of leadership… Thank you. Amazing, amazing group.“So let me say this right up front: A Trump administration; our Christian heritage will be cherished, protected, defended, like you’ve never seen before. “Believe me. I beliAll Postseve it. And you believe it. And you know it. You know it. And that includes religious liberty.” Trump also promised to appoint right-wing Justices to the Supreme Court if elected, using the recently deceased, anti-equality Justice Antonin Scalia, who once argued that "a governing majority's belief that certain sexual behaviour is 'immoral and unacceptable' constitutes a rational basis for regulation." Trump said: “Earlier this year, we lost the great justice, Antonin Scalia. The next president will not only have to fill this seat, but as many as four others… and you pick the wrong people, you have a country that is no longer your country. It will be a disaster. “We are going to put truly great people. Maybe we use Judge Scalia of the ultimate example of what we’re looking for, OK? “I have pledged to appoint judges who uphold the Constitution, to protect your religious liberty, and apply the law as written.” His attendance at this summit comes after a string of incidents that undermine his initial pledge to protect LGBT people, including a $100,000 donation to an anti-LGBT church run by Tony Perkins.
