Gay Rights: Democrats say that the Trump Administration is hostile to gay rights ... despite the clear record. President Trump has appointed five (5) openly gay ambassadors. Among them, is Richard Grenell who later served as the Director of National Intelligence on an interim basis, and is now working for the Republican National Committee as a senior adviser to focus on LGBT voter outreach. Grenell was the first openly gay cabinet member ... EVER. Grenell has been very critical of the record of 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who “as a United States Senator… said gay people couldn’t receive security clearances because we would be a security risk.” Grenell continued, “Joe must have been terrified when Donald Trump appointed me as acting Director of National Intelligence ... [T]he fact that I’m gay didn’t even phase Donald Trump. Joe Biden certainly didn’t congratulate the appointment or even acknowledge it, but his silence was deafening.”
I have seen so many of my friends comment that the Trump Administration is hostile to Gay Rights and community. That is a lie. Just ask Richard Grenell.
