Past Presidents like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama gladly and openly recognized LGBT Pride Month with presidential proclamations. But from Trump it's crickets.
Trump issued five proclamations for June recognizing little-known events such as National Homeownership Month and Great Outdoors Month. Quite honestly, when was the last time you heard of a parade to recognize National Homeownership Month?
Ford comments about how Trump's omission does not jive with his frequent boasts during the campaign that he was LGBT-friendly. He also correctly notes that Trump "hasn’t taken a single pro-LGBTQ action in office."
And then Ford goes for the heart of the matter when he distills why Trump thinks he's pro-LGBT -- if you're LGBT and Islamophobic, then Trump's your man. He won't do jack shit on LGBT issues but you can be sure he'll be as Islamophobic as possible whilst protecting you in your home from ISIS ninjas.
As I've said many times, Trump has no moral compass. So it's no surprise he completely ignores LGBT Pride Month.
