Report: Donald Trump To Speak At Phyllis Schlafly’s Funeral

Donald Trump is expected to speak at conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly’s funeral Saturday, an anonymous source told CNN.

Trump said he’d attend the funeral for Schlafly, who died Monday at 92, during his Friday speech at the Values Voter Summit.

“Phyllis endorsed me at a time when it was not necessarily the thing to do, even the popular thing to do, and I will never forget that that had a great, great impact,” Trump said. “I look forward to being with her family tomorrow.”

CNN’s source did not say what Trump’s remarks would entail. Schlafly’s funeral, which is open to the public, will take place in St. Louis.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
