In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Vice-President Mike Pence covered a LOT of ground, including the Obama LGBT order implemented by Obama in 2014.
Will President Trump honor or repeal the anti-discrimination protections put in place by President Obama?
Check out what the Vice-President had to say:
Vice-President Mike Pence said anti-LGBT discrimination had ‘no place’ in Donald Trump’s administration as he backed the president’s decision to uphold protective measures for federal workers.
Pence told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos during an interview aired Sunday that ‘in the patriot’s heart, there’s no room for prejudice’.
The White House on Tuesday released a statement saying an executive order signed by Barack Obama to protect LGBT federal workers against discrimination would remain in place. A draft order had been circulating, outlining plans to overturn the 2014 protections…
…’I think throughout the campaign, President Trump made it clear that discrimination would have no place in our administration,’ Pence said.
‘He was the very first Republican nominee to mention the LGBTQ community at our Republican National Convention and was applauded for it. And I was there applauding with him.’
The vice-president further praised Trump’s message.
‘I think the generosity of his spirit, recognizing that in the patriot’s heart, there’s no room for prejudice, is part of who this president is,’ Pence said.
