Donald Trump Opposes the LGBT Equality Act

Via the Washington Blade:

With a vote on the Equality Act in the U.S. House expected on Friday, a senior administration official indicated exclusively to the Washington Blade that President Trump opposes the bill.

“The Trump administration absolutely opposes discrimination of any kind and supports the equal treatment of all; however, this bill in its current form is filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights,” the senior administration official said via email.

More details about Trump’s position on the Equality Act may come soon from the White House, which traditionally issues a Statement of Administration Policy when legislation comes to the floor of either chamber of Congress.

Is anyone really shocked by this?

So it looks like no matter even if the Republican controlled Senate were able to pass it trump would never sign it.

This is just one more reason why the 2020 election and taking the Senate and kicking Trump out of the White House is so very important.
