    Hillary Clinton slammed President Donald Trump Thursday at a fundraiser, saying his administration is a threat to LGBT rights, NBC News reported.

    "Each time this administration elevates an outspoken opponent of LGBT equality," the former presidential candidate said, "I picture all of the joyful, beaming couples that I've met across our country … who are so excited to get married, start a family, and begin their lives together."

    At the event in New York City, Clinton criticized Trump for withdrawing Obama-era school guidance aimed at protecting transgender kids, which instructed public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that align with their chosen gender identities.

    The former secretary of state was at the fundraiser to receive the LGBT Center's Trailblazer award.
