Summary: Williams Institute factsheet to assist with reporting on Trump administration statement on Executive Order 13672.


President Trump has issued a statement that he will not repeal Executive Order 13672 which prohibits federal contractors from discriminating against their employees based on sexual orientation or gender identity. However, the statement does not say that the Administration will not take other actions to limit legal protections for LGBT people, including by creating exemptions to current civil rights protections based on religion or moral belief.
