Re: Trump is the most pro-gay president in U.S. history

Posted by mtk52983 on Tue Sep 15 10:20:34 2020, in response to Trump is the most pro-gay president in U.S. history, posted by Orange Blossom Special on Tue Sep 15 09:11:45 2020.

What about when President Trump's Justice Department argued before the Supreme Court that LGBT individuals are not covered under Title VII?

What about when President Trump tried to ban LGBT in the military?

Presidents Obama and Clinton appointed plenty of LGBT Judges (many more than Trump - including possibly a Supreme Court Justice since nobody is really sure about Justice Kagan's preferences) so why the focus on only Patrick Bumatay?

I do agree that President Clinton temporarily set back LGBT rights with "don't ask don't tell," DOMA, etc., but there was great evolution nationwide in the intervening years. While President Obama may not personally be a fan of homosexuality, his administration supported the overturning of DOMA and state level measures supporting the rights of LGBT individuals to marry each other.
