It has now officially been confirmed that President Donald Trump has ended the 8-year tradition of LGBT Pride Month celebrations in the White House, which was initially started with former President Obama.
During his 8-year reign, Obama issued annual proclamations recognizing the month of June as the Pride Month of the LGBT and hosed festivities inside the White House, but that won’t be happening any longer.
This Thursday, a string of Proclamations were released by the White House, marking June as “National Homeownership Month”, “National Ocean Month”, “African-American Music Appreciation Month” – but there wasn’t a proclamation released for the LGBT Pride Month.
Of course, the criticism immediately started rolling in, and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi was the first one to lash out at the Trump administration in her own Pride Month statement, saying how this is a month for celebrating their struggles and sacrifices as well as their success in the fight for equality.
But she was quick to switch into full attack mode, saying that LGBT Americans “face an assault on their rights from the White House and House Republicans, who are gutting HIV prevention and treatment initiatives.”
She explained how these were hateful discriminatory acts which “dishonor our nation’s most sacred ideals of liberty” but it is a bit ironic to talk about liberty and free speech without being judged, when every single one of the Democrats follow President Trump and take notes of every minor mistake he makes only so they can criticize him later on.
But no matter what these Democrats say to paint a bad image of our president, one thing is for certain – President Trump still holds a group of hardcore Republican supporters, so saying that he doesn’t respect them, and they don’t respect him is a bit senseless.
What do you think about this decision?
