President Trump has decided to leave in place an order from the Obama administration in 2014 that provided new workplace protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. According to the White House, Trump is proud to embrace gay rights and has no plans to reverse the order. “President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of L.G.B.T.Q. rights, just as he was throughout the election,” a statement said. “The president is proud to have been the first ever G.O.P. nominee to mention the L.G.B.T.Q. community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression.” Notably, Trump's decision to leave the 2014 order in place does not preclude other executive orders that could harm gay rights.
