New Press Secretary Unsure Whether Trump Will Undo Obama’s LGBT Executive Order

Sean Spicer, the press secretary for the Trump administration said yesterday that he doesn’t know if Trump is planning to overturn Barack Obama‘s executive order banning anti-LGBT discrimination among federal contractors.

This week, Spicer responded to a question from the Washington Blade in a press briefing, saying:

I don’t know on that one. I have to get back to you on that. I don’t think that we’ve gotten that far in the list of executive orders, but I’d be glad to get back to you.”

When pressed about executive orders about LGBT rights in general, Spicer responded,

Again, it’s not — I just don’t know the answer. I’ll try to get back to you on that.”

The new President has never released a policy plan on LGBT issues, and also has no policy plan on HIV/AIDS.

He also failed to detail policies on either issue during his election campaign.

However, Trump said he planned to overturn many of Obama’s executive orders. He did not specifically mention any executive order related to LGBT rights.
