The so-called president is certainly not doing this on his own- his administration is packed with psychotic homophobic bigots, and he is roundly supported by a "yuge" number of voting bigots who blame queer (and women's/people's of color) rights on the downfall of "Merica."
These so-called citizens claim that protecting the rights of "the other" amounts to granting "special rights," which aren't covered by the constitution, and need to be repealed. Trump is "their man" to accomplish this task, and the so-called administration is full of people hand-chosen to do just this, in addition to dismantling federal agencies which protect the environment, workplace, etc.
If you listen or read conservative media, you will find that LGBTQ folks are considered a "threat" akin to pre WW2 Jews- the 21st century scapegoat to be sacrificed on the alter of "great america." Please stand by LGBT people, people of color, and all marginalized people, as they are the first line of defense- rest assured, if you don't, eventually you, or your loved ones, will be targeted as well.
For whatever reason, the so-called Christians think the golden rule ("Do unto others...") only applies to their own. Don't fall into that trap. Getting to know "the other-" whatever that means for you- will reveal common ground. This is the foundation of a truly "Great America."
