President Trump will become the first sitting president to address the Voters Value Summit on Friday in Washington.  The comments wil come following an announcement that the Trump administration will authorize overt bigotry and discrimination by elected officials in the name of "religious freedom."

Critics have called the group anti-LGBT, including the Human Research Council. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated it as a hate group due to its statements and "false claims about the LGBT community."

Found not much to research on: Human Research Council.  Perhaps the name is less than exact? Is this a US based organization? Only one close seemed to be in South Africa.

The SPLC is not worthy of following any recommendation or critique. Far left, anti liberty group, in my opinion, seeks nothing positive as their outcome.

The Values Voter Summit is an annual event, since 2006 at least, hosting Republicans seeking high office, generally, including in previous years some Presidential Straw Polls and similar. Not a surprise a Republican President will be invited to speak, and am glad to see President Trump agree to speak there.

He is speaking to his existing and prospective voter base, regardless of their individual stands on Gay Marriage, Homosexuality, and Abortion, issues this group has strong positions about, along with personal liberty, national defense.

Well he has nothing positive to say about individual liberties, he has trashed the First Amendment. And he is ignorant about national defense, he’s trying to start a war.

How has the President trashed the First Amendment?  Exactly how?

  He may say things using verbiage you are not comfortable with, or different from other politicians at times, but trashing the First Amendment? Don't think so... seems all continue to say and do as they wish who may oppose his ideas or statements. The First Amendment is alive and working as it has all along.

  President Trump is not trying to start a war.  He quizzed, asked open ended questions, and was fully involved in what is often a boring "force review" with his National Defense Team, asking/demanding answers when some attempted to give platitudes about the status of ALL our capabilities. This upset some, and gave pause to any who believed they could slide past items, or found it difficult to defend our current status on some items, for which they are held accountable.

  Our "mainstream press" is too willing to solicit and print unattributed remarks of random people, if they can spin it against the Republican President. This is not new, as the mainstream press is always adversarial with Republicans, but having nothing real they choose to cover, and with a President who bites back when attacked, the 24/7 news cycle feeding occurs.

  Had Democrats offered different, better ideas, offered a less repulsive person or one who was guaranteed not to be in jail for major offenses which are still under review, the result of the last election would still have been close, and might have gone the direction the leftist media and Democrats, but I repeat myself, hoped for, but alas, Democrats offered 'the third Obama Admin', and that was rejected by the voters.

  READ the map, look at the number of counties each candidate carried, or the number of Congressional Districts each candidate carried, and the result is clear as to what the people want, whether their wants are possible or not is the only question, and in what time period.

  The need for the President to "troll" he Senate and Congress in order to get his own party members to do what they promised for the past seven years in their election campaigns is appalling and still is necessary, at least for now.

  I for one am glad we have a President willing to do what it takes, and willing to call out people like Bob Corker for his past actions, engineering the IRAN bill so that instead of having a Senate approve it as a treaty with the requisite number of votes in affirmative, our Senate congress would be forced to override a presidential veto to block that bill, yes, good reason for Bob Corker to never run again.

  Hopefully the electorate will appreciate the efforts and difficulty experienced within to get the items addressed that are necessary. It can be frustrating, and is very necessary to return our Nation and it's future to its proper status.

Trump is also going to force some 20 million Americans out of healthcare insurance. I think the GOP just lost the next election.

It is very likely that everyone’s health insurance premiums will see a marked increase. And that includes those of us who get it through our employers.

Trump engages in provocative acts with an unstable regime, uses provocative language, to encite a response. The 5 yo POTUS is incapable of diplomacy.

He has advocated restricting the free speech of Americans, and the silencing of a news organization who does not slavishly praise him. Shades of Stalin.

Anything being reported that does not stroke his ego he calls fake news. Tinpot dictator.

He wants to allow government officials to discriminate against other religions and classes of people.

When he opens his mouth and it gets reported, he calls it fake news. Propaganda is his only refuge.

look to The Weimar Republic, 1933. That is our future under Trump.

  Little to do with any action toward 'trashing' the First Amendment. Opinions and comments, all valid in whatever direction, do not harm the First Amendment, but help it grow and remain strong.

  The President DOES have First Amendment rights, as do we all. Without any input by Democrats, by their own design of obstructionism, ideas of politicians and policy agreements between parties is not facilitated, and I can understand some frustration on the part of people who do not feel their own Congress Reps have their best interests in mind, or are ineffective at getting their ideas employed and discussed meaningfully.

  With no 'yes votes' offered to trade, negotiations are negligible, by self choice of Democrat leaders, and all Democrat Reps and Senators appear to agree to the lockstep following of Chuck and Nancy's policies, unless it no longer matters. Life is difficult, and differences between us all are exploited too often.

  Actions taken by Executive Order are vulnerable to change by Executive Order, it is the nature of the beast. With the failure of Congress to affect the desired changes, the President is using his authority to affect such changes.
This is all a process, toward bringing the lawful conclusion to issues bullied into use in prior years and lacking legislation to fix issues, a temporary change is better than no change.

  While not ideal, the result represents progress, and may help force some to find ways to agree to legislate. We shall see.
