Young miss Clinton spoke to LGBT audience in Charlotte on behalf of her mother. She gave a passionate speech to over 200 people at the Human Rights Campaign and Equality North Carolina event. “In my heart, this is the most consequential election of my lifetime,” Chelsea said, “I’m constantly talking to people across our country about how important it is to vote up and down the ballot, and you understand that probably more than anyone else does at this moment in time. So thank you for what you’re doing to make the case about why this election is the most important of our lifetime, while also recognising that all elections really matter.”

Clinton recounted stories to the audience, including that of a woman from Guatemala who she recently met in Pennsylvania. The woman said her son’s middle school classmates told him to “go back to Mexico” and they “can’t wait until we build a wall to keep people like you out.” She also spoke of a 8-year-old girl with a gay father who told her “the boys in my school say my dad’s going to have to go back into the closet” if Donald Trump is elected. She added that love should win over hate and it should be more than just words. She thanked to everybody who supports her mother
