Trump Reacts To “Very Powerful” Supreme Court’s Ruling In Favour Of LGBT+ Rights

U.S.A. President Donald Trump spoke to reporters and commented on the “very powerful decision” of the Supreme Court ruling in favour of LGBT+ rights saying it is a decision “we can live with”.

“They’ve ruled,” Trump said. “I’ve read the decision. And some people were surprised. But they’ve ruled and we live with their decision. That’s what it’s all about. We live with the decision of the Supreme Court. Very powerful. A very powerful decision, actually.”

According to ‘LGBTQ Nation’, the Trump administration has done more to oppose and undermine LGBT+ rights than other administrations in recent history. 

Last week, by using the same argument that the Supreme Court rejected - that “sex” does not include sexual orientation and gender identity - the Trump administration announced it would roll back rules that prevent health care providers from discriminating agains LGBT+ people.
