Trump's Timeline of

Since the moment Donald Trump and Mike Pence walked into the White House, they have attacked the progress we have made toward full equality for the LGBTQ community and undermined the rights of countless Americans.

But over the course of their time in office, you haven’t stayed silent. Whether he meant to or not, Donald Trump and Mike Pence have awakened a sleeping giant. Never before have Americans been more eager to participate, advocate and fight back. Each and every day, HRC and our grassroots supporters are harnessing the full power of our democracy to protect our progress and resist.

Together, we will keep uniting against hate, fighting for our community and taking a stand against the Trump-Pence administration’s dangerous and discriminatory agenda.

Trump's Record of Hate

Since Trump was sworn into office, our nation’s federal courts have halted his draconian and illegal executive actions from being implemented, while millions of people across the country have become more politically engaged, standing up against hate and bigotry.

But Trump is a bully and so is his administration. He will do everything in his power to tear back the progress made under former President Obama, including rolling back and undermining laws that help the LGBTQ community and other minority groups.

HRC will continue to stand up against Trump. We will join other civil rights organizations and remain vigilant in holding Trump and his administration accountable at every turn.
