While only the White House can speak to the veracity of the rumours, given the administration’s track record of championing discrimination in just the last week, HRC is preparing to fight this to the fullest.
“The rumours of an anti-LGBTQ executive action by President Trump are deeply troubling. We already know that he is willing to target and marginalise at-risk communities for his perceived political gain. As the President and his team plan their next steps, we want to make one thing clear: we won’t give one inch when it comes to defending equality, whether it is a full-on frontal assault or an attack under the guise of religion. Mike Pence should know that better than anyone given his track record in Indiana,” said JoDee Winterhof, the Human Rights Campaign‘s Senior Vice President for Policy and Political Affairs.
