White House Says Trump Will Leave Pro-LGBT Obama Executive Order Intact

Trump is just bad on most everything and he has a politically correct daughter lurking in the background.

According to the New York Times,. the White House said on Monday that President Trump would leave in place a 2014 Obama administration order that created new workplace protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

“President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of L.G.B.T.Q. rights, just as he was throughout the election,” the statement said. “The president is proud to have been the first ever G.O.P. nominee to mention the L.G.B.T.Q. community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression.”

The one positive thing about Obama's executive order is that is harrases federal government contractors. A subtlety that is no doubt not understood by the President.

The Obama order banned companies that do federal work from discriminating against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees. It was the first time the government explicitly protected federal workers from discrimination based on gender identity.
