Hillary Clinton said Thursday night that she doubts the Trump administration will help defend the LGBT rights that President Obama and other Democrats fought for over the last eight years.

"I think we have to face the fact that we may not ever be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues," she said in New York in a speech to The Center, an LGBT group.

Clinton said the Trump administration shows that the rights people thought were secure "may not be as secure as we once expected."

She also said her "heart broke" when she saw the Trump administration rolled back protections for transgender students.

Clinton, who lost to Trump in last year's election, encouraged people to keep fighting for their rights.

When a man in the audience shouted "2020," Clinton responded by saying people should be thinking of the next election.

"Let's remember 2018, the midterm elections," she said. "We need to resist, insist, persist and enlist, and make sure our voices and our votes count."
