Rumours have been flying around the media recently around whether President Trump will rescind Obama’s executive order to protect trans federal employees from discrimination. 

A statement from the White House says, “the President is proud to have been the first ever GOP nominee to mention the LGBTQ [sic] community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression. The executive order signed in 2014, which protects employees from anti-LGBTQ workplace discrimination while working for federal contractors, will remain intact.”

Earlier this week, a briefing with Press Secretary Sean Spicer regarding the rumours yielded a vague answer, with Spicer saying “I’m not getting to head ahead of executive orders we may or may not issue. There is [sic] a lot of executive orders, a lot of things that the president has talked about and will continue to fulfil but I have nothing on that front.”
