The Trump administration has reportedly denied requests from several United States embassies to fly the rainbow flag on the flagpole in honor of Pride Month, which stands in contrast with President Donald Trump's recent pledge to "stand in solidarity" with the LGBTQ community around the world.

The US embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia were denied requests to fly the pride flag on embassies' flagpoles in June, according to what diplomats told NBC News.

State Department policy dictates that embassies must acquire permission to fly the pride flag on their flagpoles. No embassy that has made the request has been granted permission as of yet, according to the NBC report, though they are allowed to display the flag inside and other places.

Nope.
People are tired of having to pretend to give a shit one way or another. It is never enough. It has become tiresome. For christ sake. Nobody cares. Stop going on and on and on about it.
Thou dost protest wayyyyyyyy too much for you to pretend that statement is anywhere near credible... :rolleyes:

And what's really stupid about your response is Trump has tried pretending he cares.

But now, he doesn't want to do something rather simple and obvious to reaffirm a position he himself has supposedly picked up? It's a perfect demonstration of a position he claims he espouses by utilizing the embassies to fly a flag demonstrating the U.S. supports decriminalization, but Trump can't be bothered with something so simple???


Regardless, it appears some people are recognizing the importance of the issue.

Good! Although I fear Trump might try to fire them.
