A pleasant surprise from Trump on LGBT nondiscrimination protections

Contrary to rumor and my expectations, Trump will leave the federal contractors nondiscrimination ban in place. According to the statement from the White House:
President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of L.G.B.T.Q. rights, just as he was throughout the election … The president is proud to have been the first ever G.O.P. nominee to mention the L.G.B.T.Q. community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression.
I am quite happy to have been wrong.
