A couple of sites are reporting that Trump is planning to issue an executive order within the next few days that will effectively license anti-LGBT discrimination. I have spoken to the only contact that I have in the Trump administration and that individual knows of no such pending order.
I fully expect Trump to rescind Obama’s executive order requiring federal contractors not to discriminate. The way Trump sees things, he owes us nothing. He owes much more to conservative Christians. Right and wrong are no longer part of decision making. It’s all about the political balance sheet. Just look at the new cabinet for proof of that fact
I suspect that Trump will try to impose more than just the repeal of President Obama’s executive order. Of course that will prompt Peter Thiel to issue an “I made a mistake” press release. Maybe not. Instead of donating to Acton Institute maybe he should think about supporting Center for American Progress.
In addition to Thiel, Gregory T. Angelo of Log Cabin Republicans submitted a 41 page memorandum on federal contractors. It was terribly executed.
We will all have to suffer through Tony Perkins gloating. Meanwhile, Trump is busy destroying our economy, our standing in the world and our self-respect as Americans.
