Trump Continues LGBTQ Protections Order

Contrary to what some had thought planned, and despite some of his campaign assurances, President Trump has said that he plans to continue to enforce Obama's 2014 executive order that offers protections for the employees of federal contractors from discrimination based on their sexual orientation.

Trump "is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community," the White House said. It said the 2014 executive order signed by former President Barack Obama that protects LGBTQ rights for people working at federal contractors "will remain intact at the direction" of the new president.

The executive order signed by Obama barred federal contractors from hiring or firing employees based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
