Trump had no idea his administration was trying to decriminalize homosexuality across the globe

When asked by the press about his administration’s new effort to decriminalize homosexuality across the globe, Trump had no idea what they were talking about.

President Donald Trump’s administration launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality. The program is being led by the U.S. ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, who is an openly gay person in the Trump administration.

The campaign will focus on countries where homosexuality is still against the law, such as parts of the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean. The launch of the campaign was met with skepticism from LGBTQ activists.

In addition to the backlash, Trump appeared unaware that his administration even announced the campaign.

While in the Oval Office with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, reporters followed up with Trump on a few of his policies.

“Say it?” Trump responded.

“Your push to decriminalize homosexuality around the world,” the reporter clarified.

“I don’t know which report you’re talking about. We have many reports. Anybody else?” Trump said.

“No one wants to hear from the man who says that the former president was not born in this country. No one wants to hear from the man who said there are ‘very fine people on both sides.’ Do you understand what I am saying?” he asked.
