Last night activists from the LBGTQ community threw a party of protest in front of the D.C. home of Jared Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump. They were protesting recent decisions made by the Trump administration. President Barack Obama signed executive orders that protected those who identify as Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender, and Queer. With the stroke of a pen, #President Trump rescinded those orders that prevented discrimination.

The changes

President Trump revoked protection for LBGTQ 's in government positions. This means that they can now be discriminated against in the workplace. He also removed LGBTQ questions from the U.S.

Basic human rights

All citizens of the United States deserve to have #Basic Human Rights. No one should be mistreated or denied employment or housing because of their race, country of origin, sex, or sexual orientation. President Trump is showing a disdain for a segment of the people he swore to serve. His decisions put these individuals in harms way. It was announced today on Huffington Post that gay men are disappearing from the streets of Chechnya. It's being reported that they are being rounded up and murdered. The reason is because they wanted to protest for equal rights.

The authorities say it's not true, because there are no gay men in the country.

President Trump strikes again

Our 45th president is supposed to govern all people in the nation. His executive orders may put the LBGTQ community at risk. We don't need American citizens disappearing off the streets, they desire equal rights. We certainly don't need a leader who discriminates by issuing executive orders that may cause harm and/or death. With one stroke of his pen, President Trump has erased basic human rights that were 8 years in the making. #LGBT
