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

September 9, 2016 5:08 p.m.

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.
