Gay marriage is Evil, it has no place in America, We belongs to God – US President Trump
Several social issues disappeared from the whitehouse.gov site on Friday, including a page dedicated to LGT rights.
A report on the Labor Department’s website on LGB workers rights was also removed.
Advocates for the LGBT community have worries about what Trump’s administration would mean for the progress made on equality issues under President Obama. As a candidate, President Trump said he is opposed to same-sez marriage and Vice President Pence has taken strong anti-gay rights stances throughout his political career.
And while it is standard for the new administration to update the white house’s official website with its agenda as part of the transition it is notable that the Trump administration did not choose to include anything about LGBT
In a statement on Friday afternoon, Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said, “If President Trump truly believes in uniting the country, now is the time to make clear whether he will be an ally to the LGBTQ community in our struggle for full equality.
We are prepared to do whatever it takes to protect our community and our progress.
