An anti-discrimination, LGBTQ executive order signed by former President Obama in 2014 will remain on the books during President Trump’s administration, according to a White House statement.
The executive order protected the LGBTQ community from any discriminatory practices based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
On Tuesday, the White House said, “President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community.”
The statement also said:
“The executive order signed in 2014, which protects employees from anti-LGBTQ workplace discrimination while working for federal contractors, will remain intact.”
