White House says anti-LGBTQ executive order ‘not the plan at this time’

As we previously reported, sources have said an executive order from President Donald Trump that would allow for discrimination against the LGBTQ community could be coming this week.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked by a reporter from the Washington Blade if a religious freedom, anti-LGBTQ executive order was in the works, and he declined to answer.

“I’m not getting ahead of the executive orders that we may or may not issue,” Spicer said. “There’s a lot of executive orders, a lot of things the president has talked about and will continue to fulfill, but we have nothing on that front now.”

A White House spokesperson has also responded to NBC News by email, seeming to deny the reports.

“As Sean said in the briefing today – we don’t want to get ahead of the EO/As [executive orders and actions] that are coming, but that isn’t the plan at this time,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham wrote.
