Joe Biden has announced his plans on how he will protect the rights of those in the LGBTQ+ community, and it’s very interesting. Keep on reading to hear what he had to say…
As both of President Trump’s and Joe Biden’s individual town-hall forums took place as scheduled.
But what about Biden’s over in Philadelphia? Well, the Democratic candidate addressed some very important issues, including the lengths he’ll go to in order to protect LGBTQ+ rights.
But was hastily canceled over coronavirus fears following Trump’s positive test earlier in the month.
But it was established almost instantly that things were going to be carried out virtually due to Trump’s recent COVID diagnosis.
And he demanded that the debate be restored to its original, in-person format, before adding that he would refuse to take part in any virtual debate entirely.
Which is the very thing we watched this evening.
At the exact same time as Biden’s ABC appearance.
And NBC has been criticized for agreeing to go ahead with Trump’s forum which will force viewers to choose either one or the other to watch, rather than getting an equal share of both candidates.
Just on different channels from different parts of the country, with undecided voters watching in the audience.
Yep, I told you things had strayed slightly from the norm.
Biden took a slightly different approach over in Philadelphia.
And what he said blew Trump right out of the park.
“He missed enormous opportunities and kept saying things that weren’t true,” he said, noting that Trump’s administration said the virus would go away by Easter or be eradicated by the summer heat.
He explained how his first move would have been “sending Americans to China to get the most up to date knowledge on the virus.”
And that the President should be pushing all Americans to use masks as a way to stop the spread.
“He didn’t talk about what needed to be done because he kept worrying, in my view, about the stock market… He worried if he talked about how bad this could be, unless we took these precautionary actions, then, in fact, the market would go down. And his barometer of the success of the economy is the market.”
And when a mother of a transgender child asked Biden about his plans for LGBTQ+ rights, his answer was astonishing.
“I’m the proud mom of 2 girls, 8 and 10, my youngest daughter is transgender. The Trump Administration has attacked the rights of transgender people – banning them from military service, weakening non-discrimination, protections, and even removing the word ‘transgender’ from some government websites.”
And how he will ensure the lives and rights of LGBTQ+ people will be protected.
“I will flat out just change the law, I will eliminate those executive orders.”
Biden explained how, as a young boy, he saw 2 corporate-looking men kiss each other, and his father said, “Joe, it’s simple. They love each other.”
“The idea that an 8-year-old child decides, ‘You know, I decided I want to be transgender’, there should be zero discrimination and what’s happening is, too many transgender women of color are being murdered… so I promise you there is no reason to suggest that there should be any rights denied to your daughter.”
And so did the internet!
Who knows right now.
