Trump Snubs Entire LGBT Community With Disgusting Anti-Pride Announcement

The American people continue to be disappointed in President Trump as he breaks the tradition of the president acknowledging LGBTQ Pride month.

The tradition, which was recognized through out the Obama administration, was first celebrated in 2000, by President Bill Clinton who declared June as LGBT Pride month. President Obama acknowledge and celebrated Pride month through out his administration.

The absence of the show of support from President Trump is just another back mark on his administration. However, other members of the Trump administration have issued statements and publicly showed support for LGBT Pride month. The White House has yet to formally acknowledge Pride month.

The reason it’s so surprising to some that there has been no acknowledgment is because the former reality star turned president attempted to put forth support for gay rights while on the campaign trail. In October of 2016 the then Republican presidential nominee posed next to a rainbow flag in Colorado. Earlier in the summer of 2016, just after the Pulse Orlando shootings, Trump was speaking to a conservative crowd when he promised to do everything in his power, should he be elected, to protect LGBTQ citizens from violence and discrimination.

Trump said:

‘I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from violence and oppression of the hateful, foreign ideology, believe me.’

Around the same time Trump tweeted that he’d be a better ally to the gay community than former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.


But it’s become apparent that, like most things Trump made promises about while on the road to the presidency, he was simply making blind promises in hopes of duping American citizens into voting for him. Many of Donald Trump’s promises have had no follow through and his pledge to support the LGBTQ citizens of this country was quite simply, a false promise.

First daughter and advisor to the president, Ivanka Trump, did tweet about Pride month, which is more than can be said for her social media loving father.

Senator Sharrod Brown, in response to the White House’s decision not to recognize June as Pride month, introduced a Senate resolution last week to do so.

Senator Brown along with 23 of his fellow senators have sponsored the resolution.
