Vice President Mike Pence called The Trump Administration’s decision to prohibit US embassies from flying the “rainbow pride” flag on their flagpoles during LGBTQ Pride Month “the right decision” in a TV interview.
When asked about arguments that the policy contradicts The Trump Administration’s claim to be a leader in promoting LGBTQ rights worldwide, especially since embassies had been allowed to fly the flag on their flagpoles during The Hussein Obama Admin, VP Pence said “As the President said on the night we were elected, we are proud to be able to serve every American. We both feel that way very passionately, but when it comes to the American flagpole, and American embassies, and capitals around the world, one American flag flies.”
The Vice President pointed out that The Trump Administration had “put no restrictions” on the pride flag flying elsewhere at US embassies, such as inside the building or putting banners up on the exterior walls of buildings.
Our Vice President, who has repeatedly insisted that marriage can only take place between a man and a woman, has a long history of decision against the LGBTQ community.
He also voted in Y 2010 against repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which prevented LGBT Americans serving openly in the military.
