Trump Disgraces America By Refusing To Let Embassies Fly Rainbow Flags During LGBTQ Pride Month

The Trump administration has refused to allow US embassies around the world to fly the rainbow flag for LGBTQ Pride Month.

NBC News reported:
The Trump administration is rejecting requests from U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow pride flag on embassy flagpoles during June, LGBTQ Pride Month, three American diplomats told NBC News.

The U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia are among those that have requested permission from Trump’s State Department to fly the pride flag on their flagpoles and have been denied, diplomats said.

During the Obama administration, embassies had blanket permission to fly the flag. The Trump administration’s decision at a time when many LGBTQ persons face criminalization and even death around the world is a signal to the global community that the United States under Trump has abandoned its role as the world’s civil rights and anti-discrimination leader.

Trump is taking the United States ten steps back after the progress that took decades to achieve began to become a reality. Whether it is the criminalization of a woman’s right to control her own healthcare decisions, or the effort to shove gay people back into the closet, Donald Trump is more than a Twitter account, he is a bigoted president who is setting human rights in the United States back decades.

Trump is a disgrace who in no way represents who we are as a nation.
