Trump says that her decision to join LPAC, which is an organization that is devoted to increasing the number of LGBTQ women in office, was prompted by the destruction she says she saw her uncle cause to America’s democracy, according to Politico.
We came really close to losing our democracy and I may sound melodramatic but it happens to be true, Trump, who has become an outspoken critic of her uncle, told the outlet. I feel its the beginning of the fight because we came so close to losing everything, and were also faced with a situation in which theres this fight over the filibuster, and its important we understand this is about representation across the board.
Prior to her uncle’s election to the highest office in the nation, Trump worked with LPAC. She was asked to return to help the organization ramp up its recruitment of candidates ahead of the 2022 midterm elections and to also raise funds for their campaigns, Politico noted.

Currently, there are only 11 openly LGBTQ members of Congress, Politico reported.
If its only men making decisions about women’s issues or straight people making decisions about LGBTQ issues, then thats where we run into problems and weve seen this, Trump told the outlet.
