Internet Drags Ivanka Trump Over LGBT Pride Tweet
Yesterday, Ivanka Trump took to Twitter to wish her followers a happy LGBT Pride month.
But Twitter was having none of it!
Although Trump has called himself a friend of the LGBTQ community, the president has stripped policies that protect transgender students’ bathroom rights and Vice President Mike Pence has openly opposed marriage equality and appeared to support so-called “conversion therapy”.
Most recently, the Trump administration outraged the LGBTQ community when the Census Bureau announced in late March that questions relating to sexual orientation or gender identity won’t be included in the 2020 census.
The president has so far remained silent on Pride Month and failed to release any proclamation declaring June as a month to honor LGBTQ people.
