The Washington Examiner reports:
President Trump drew a blank Wednesday when told about his own administration’s push to legalize homosexuality across the globe. A reporter asked Trump in the Oval Office about “your push to decriminalize homosexuality around the world,” asking, “Are you doing that and why?”
Trump said, however, “I don’t know which report you’re talking about. We have many reports.” White House representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether Trump was aware of his administration’s push to repeal anti-homosexuality laws in 71 countries.
The Washington Blade reports:
Vice President Mike Pence backs the newly announced Trump administration global initiative calling on nation’s to decriminalize homosexuality, a spokesperson for his office told the Washington Blade on Wednesday.
“The authoritarian regime in Tehran represses the freedom of speech and assembly, it persecutes religious minorities, brutalizes women, executes gay people, and openly advocates the destruction of the State of Israel,” Pence said.
“The Ayatollah Khamenei himself has said, ‘It is the mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to erase Israel from the map.’”
That Pence immediately made it about Israel supports my contention in the post below this one.
