Hillary Clinton wants Donald Trump to officially come out against the alleged “gay purge” in Chechnya.
During a fundraising dinner for New York’s The Centre, she said, “Gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.”
It’s a phrase she’s used several times following Trump’s election, and one she first used while standing in the UN’s Palais des Nations in Geneva in 2011 as Secretary of State.
“I know that the election hit a lot of us hard,” she said while receiving The Centre’s Trailblazer Award.

She said it’s especially important right now since “we’re seeing clouds gathering on the horizon” for the LGBTQ community.
