Trump’s First World AIDS Day Proclamation Makes No Mention Of Gay Men, Trans People, Or People Of Color

Trump just issued his first World AIDS Day proclamation and it rather pointedly makes no mention of the lopsided impact of HIV infection on gay men, trans people, or people of color. Trump does, however, single out “adolescent girls and young women.”

For comparison, here’s a bit of Obama’s 2016 message:

In the United States, more than 1.2 million people are living with HIV. Gay and bisexual men, transgender people, youth, black and Latino Americans, people living in the Southern United States, and people who inject drugs are at a disproportionate risk. People living with HIV can face stigma and discrimination, creating barriers to prevention and treatment services. Let us strive to support all people living with HIV/AIDS and rededicate ourselves to ending this epidemic once and for all. Together, we can achieve what once seemed impossible and give more people the chance at a longer, brighter, AIDS-free future.

And oh yeah, this just happened.
