Trump Administration Says Employers Can Fire People for Being Gay

July 12, 2018View for printing

Why does President Donald Trump care about what gay people do in the bedroom?

The question came up this week, when a lawyer for Trump's Department of Justice argued that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not protect LGBT Americans from being fired because of their sexual orientation--a complete reversal of the government's position on such matters under previous presidents.

The Justice Department argument Tuesday, before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, came in the case of Donald Zarda who claims he was fired by his company, Altitude Express, for being gay.
