Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner worked to sink LGBT order

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump helped lead the charge to scuttle a draft executive order that would have overturned Obama-era enforcements of LGBT rights in the workplace, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation told POLITICO.

A draft executive order on LGBT rights that outlines how to roll back former President Barack Obama’s protections and expand legal exemptions based on religious beliefs has been circulating among journalists and worried progressive groups this week.

But two sources close to Kushner and Ivanka Trump, who have a record of supporting gay rights, said the couple favored putting out a clear statement from the president, promising to uphold the 2014 Obama executive order and stopping the momentum for the turnaround in its tracks.

On Tuesday night, the White House released a statement saying that “President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community. President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election.”

“The executive order signed in 2014, which protects employees from anti-LGBTQ workplace discrimination while working for federal contractors, will remain intact at the direction of President Donald J. Trump,” the statement continued.

Posted just to show that everything that happens with the Trump administration and the Trump family is not all part of a nefarious plot to destroy America. Admittedly the Trump admin has been an extreme embarrassment at times, but when someone connected to it does something that is positive and of benefit to so many, it should be acknowledged. This is no trivial matter to millions of Americans. And it doesn't make me a Trump 'supporter' either. I just think that this is worth posting.

1. Wasn't Ivanka the one chased down and harangued by the angry homosexual at the airport?

 

I wonder if he has a comment on this?

4. Ivanka could benefit from this and continued similar behavior.

She might get Nordstrom back.

5. Who knows, maybe she will. Maybe Chelsea will have to start looking for a job, now that the

Clinton Family Slush Fund is shutting down?

7. Perhaps. You know what, let's line up all the descendants of all the presidents,

and give each one little digs for no other reason than one upmanship.

That might be fun! Is it my turn?

8. So says the person who thought they'd be cute and crap in the swimming pool in the first place.

You really need to quit wagging that finger at people because no one is really impressed. Don't want to see someone post a 'dig' at your preferred (but losing) candidate, don't post an unnecessary and snide dig in the first place. That shouldn't be that hard to understand.

9. "crap in the swimming pool" No, cookie, you did that.

Ivanka lost her association with Nordstrom this week because of her association with her father's hideous policies. Distancing herself from those policies might get Nordstrom back. Period.

You decided to take offense and make it ugly.

Have the last word.

13. The thing is that what I posted had NOT ONE THING to do with Nordstrom's. You are the one who

decided to show your still chafed little fee fees after all this time. Maybe you didn't read the article and just went for the snide remarks? Or maybe you just don't know how to stick to the topic? Who knows? The point is if you don;t like someone giving you a dose of your own medicine, why do you post something irrelevant and snide in the first place? You'd be all over this place in an outraged hissy if the article said that they tried to get Trump to sign that order to screw LGBT people out of their protections. But that isn't the case, so you found something else to complain about.

You always pull this outraged routine when called on your intentional wise cracks. And this will be the 'last word' if you knock off the nonsense of taking offense where no reason for it exists.

10. Another FAKE BULLSHIT NEWS STORY.."But two sources close to Kushner and Ivanka Trump"

Are all the stories for the next 8 years going to be from unidentified people?
