The White House stated today that President Donald Trump will continue to enforce Obama’s bad executive order imposing the LGBTQ agenda on federal contractors. There is no federal employment statute that includes “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.” Congress has repeatedly rejected efforts to amend federal employment law to include “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.” The order, signed by former President Obama in 2014, imposes the LGBTQ agenda in the employment context for federal contractors.
The White House press release from his press secretary’s office stated, in part: “President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community. President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election.”
