USA President thanks his administration for showing him that changes towards LGBT issues are possible. He said: “Together, we’ve proved that change is possible, that progress is possible.” Going on, the President said that because of work done, “every single child feels valued.” Speaking of young people, Obama said they understand that “discrimination is so last century.” He added: “We live in America where the laws are finally catching up to the hearts of kids.”
As the President finished his speech at the event to mark LGBT Pride month, those in attendance chanted “four more years. Progress can be reversed,” Obama continued. “Securing the gains this country has made requires perseverance and vigilance, and it requires voting. We’re going to have to keep pushing. Tomorrow we go back to work.”

Billionaire reality TV star-turned-Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has found himself in yet another race row, after accusing a judge of bias against him due to Mexican heritage. His latest comments came just days after Trump revoked his support for transgender equality following a right-wing campaign. The previously pro-LGBT Republican claimed in a U-turn last week that states should be allowed to have anti-trans laws, toeing his party line by insisting: “Whatever you’re born, that’s the bathroom you use.”
