Right-wing US groups, some with links to Donald Trump, are spending millions of pounds campaigning against LGBT and women’s rights in Europe, it has been revealed An investigation by the website OpenDemocracy probed 28 different groups linked to the American right and found they had pushed campaigns including “LGBT-free zones” and restrictions on abortion. The groups probed have spent more in Europe than anywhere else outside the United States – least $88 million (£68 million), according to the website’s analysis. The money is largely channeled into legal and court actions pushing right-wing conservative agendas. The two largest groups by far are Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), which has close links to the Trump administration through its former staffers, and the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which is led by Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow.
