President Trump Assures That He Will "Remain Respectful Of The Rights Of LGBT Persons" And That He Will Not Repeal The Protection Decree

Written by 

Donald Trump


President Trump said he would not repeal the anti-LGBT discrimination decree and was trying to reassure the LGBTQ community.

No, you don't dream, Trump said he was "determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including those of the LGBT community" and "remains respectful and supports the rights of LGBT people," said a White House statement, notably on the decree signed by Barack Obama in 2014 that protects employees from anti-LGBT discrimination at work. So this decree should not be called into question contrary to what Vice President Mike Pence wants, which nevertheless refuses to rule out a possible anti-LGBT executive order.

It should be noted that Trump was convinced by the members of his family and especially by his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner not to pursue the anti-LGBT discrimination.
