Horvath, an outspoken LGBT activist and West Hollywood’s youngest elected mayor, described herself as “deeply disturbed” by Trump, who she claimed has “gone beyond [his] right to express a political point of view or policy differences.”
“As Mayor of West Hollywood, it is my primary responsibility to keep our community safe,” she wrote in an email to the Washington Examiner.
According to Horvath, West Hollywood was previously welcomed politicians from both parties to hold campaign events in the city. “[But] those same Horvath courtesies will not be extended to the Trump campaign,” she claims.
The 34-year-old mayor has already instructed City staff that they are able to refuse to issue special events permits to Trump should he attempt to schedule a rally in the Los Angeles County city, and “such actions are well with [their] right[s],” Horvath told the Examiner.
