tRump himself! And Pence, and Ryan, and the rest of the Rethuglicans whose voter suppression succeeded so well!

If I recall correctly, recent polling shows that a majority supports protections for LGBTQ persons. Honestly, I think Donald tRump couldn't care one way or the other . The problem with him is that the evangelical fundamentalists have a constant message pipeline to his ear and he's being highly influenced by their lies. His recent Twitter statement about transgender people in the military smacks of their anti-gay talking points. And of course having Jeff Sessions and Mike Pence cheering him on adds to the destruction of our rights.
