As President Donald Trump continues to sign a slew of executive orders, including the ban on individuals entering the United States from suspected terrorist nations, sources close to the White House say the president is ready to hit the gay community next.
According to reports, the president is prepared to sign an executive order that strips down many of the laws signed by President Obama that protect the LGBT community.
Some reports indicate the executive order specifically targets gay couples with adopted children. Although the reports do not indicate exactly how the executive order will affect gay couples, many in the LGBT community fear the worst due to Vice-President Mike Pence’s hardline views on homosexuality and gay couples with adopted children. Senior White House Advisor Steve Bannon also has very outspoken views on the LGBT community and gay couples with adopted children.
Other sources close to the White House state that the Trump administration is preparing to nullify anti-discrimination laws signed by President Obama in 2014 that protect gay employees while employed by federal contractors. According to a source close to the New Civil Rights Movement, President Trump will sign the executive order targeting the LGBT community sometime this week.
