President Trump Expected To Rollback Obama's Federal Protections For LGBT Employees
Remember when White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked if Donald Trump would reverse President Obama's executive order that protects LGBT persons from discrimination in the workplace and he answered, “I just don’t know the answer."
It would appear as though a decision has been made.
The New Civil Rights Movement has the exclusive report:
A White House official speaking on the condition of anonymity has told NCRM that high ranking officials in the Trump administration are discussing the preparation of an executive order which would roll back and nullify President Barack Obama's 2014 executive orders (photo above: signing) which protect employees from anti-LGBT workplace discrimination while working for federal contractors.
President Barack Obama's orders protect approximately one in five workers across the nation.
The official also acknowledged that discussions have included creating what would amount to a loophole allowing federal employees to discriminate or refuse service on the basis of "sincerely-held religious beliefs."
A congressional source tells NCRM the order is expected to be be signed this week, sometime before Thursday.
