President Trump vows to end homosexual persecution worldwide

President Trump has launched an international campaign to eradicate the criminalization and persecution of homosexuals worldwide.  

The Trump administration says it wants to end the criminalization of homosexuality in dozens of nations where it’s still illegal to be gay.

However, as Donald Trump Jr. points out, the laudable campaign is likely to receive zero media coverage in the U.S. because it doesn’t fit the mainstream media narrative.

NBC News reports: U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the highest-profile openly gay person in the Trump administration, is leading the effort, which kicks off Tuesday evening in Berlin. The U.S. embassy is flying in LGBT activists from across Europe for a strategy dinner to plan to push for decriminalization in places that still outlaw homosexuality — mostly concentrated in the Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean.

“It is concerning that, in the 21st century, some 70 countries continue to have laws that criminalize LGBTI status or conduct,” said a U.S. official involved in organizing the event.

Although the decriminalization strategy is still being hashed out, officials say it’s likely to include working with global organizations like the United Nations, the European Union and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, as well as other countries whose laws already allow for gay rights. Other U.S. embassies and diplomatic posts throughout Europe, including the U.S. Mission to the E.U., are involved, as is the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor.

Narrowly focused on criminalization, rather than broader LGBT issues like same-sex marriage, the campaign was conceived partly in response to the recent reported execution by hanging of a young gay man in Iran, the Trump administration’s top geopolitical foe.

Grenell, as Trump’s envoy to Germany, has been an outspoken Iran critic and has aggressively pressed European nations to abandon the 2015 nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions. But while the Trump administration has had some success in pressuring Iran through stepped-up U.S. penalties, efforts to bring the Europeans along have thus far largely fallen flat.

Reframing the conversation on Iran around a human rights issue that enjoys broad support in Europe could help the United States and Europe reach a point of agreement on Iran. Grenell called the hanging “a wake-up call for anyone who supports basic human rights,” in Bild, a leading German newspaper, this month.

“This is not the first time the Iranian regime has put a gay man to death with the usual outrageous claims of prostitution, kidnapping, or even pedophilia. And it sadly won’t be the last time,” Grenell wrote. “Barbaric public executions are all too common in a country where consensual homosexual relationships are criminalized and punishable by flogging and death.”

He added that “politicians, the U.N., democratic governments, diplomats and good people everywhere should speak up — and loudly.”

Yet by using gay rights as a cudgel against Iran, the Trump administration risks exposing close U.S. allies who are also vulnerable on the issue and creating a new tension point with the one region where Trump has managed to strengthen U.S. ties: the Arab world.

In Saudi Arabia, whose monarchy Trump has staunchly defended in the face of human rights allegations, homosexuality can be punishable by death, according to a 2017 worldwide report from the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA). The report identified 72 nations that still criminalize homosexuality, including eight where it’s punishable by death.

That list includes the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan and Afghanistan — all U.S. allies — although those countries aren’t known to have implemented the death penalty for same-sex acts. In Egypt, whose leader Trump has effusively praised, homosexual relations aren’t technically illegal but other morality laws are used aggressively to target LGBT people.

New U.S. pressure on those countries to change their laws comes as the Trump administration is working to use nascent ties between Arab nations and Israel to form a powerful axis against Iran, a strategy that dovetails with the administration’s planned rollout of an ambitious plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace.

In the Gulf state of Oman, for example, the Trump administration has touted a recent, historic visit by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a sign that old taboos are eroding. But any campaign to decriminalize homosexuality would ostensibly also have to call out Oman, where prison sentences can be handed out for being gay.

The push to end laws that outlaw homosexuality abroad also stands in contrast to the Trump administration’s mixed record on gay rights at home.

As a candidate, Trump was ambiguous about his position on many gay rights issues, but notably became the first Republican nominee to mention LGBT rights in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. His convention also featured another first: PayPal founder Peter Thiel became the first gay person to acknowledge his sexuality in a speech to the GOP convention, declaring he was “proud to be gay.”

Trump, after being elected, also said he was “fine” with same-sex marriage. But since he took office, his administration has scaled back some workplace protections for gay people and has argued in court that a federal anti-discrimination law doesn’t protect gay employees. He has also announced a ban on transgender people serving openly in the U.S. military, which the Supreme Court last month said could be implemented even as lower-court challenges play out.

U.S. officials said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is supporting the work by U.S. embassies and consulates to fight violence and discrimination against LGBT people. In his Senate confirmation hearing, Pompeo asserted: “I deeply believe that LGBTQ persons have every right that every other person in the world would have.”

Grenell, known for his hawkish views on national security, is also currently under consideration to be Trump’s ambassador to the U.N., three U.S. officials tell NBC News, after Trump’s previous pick for the job, Heather Nauert, withdrew from consideration over the weekend. Grenell once served as spokesman for the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. when that role was inhabited by John Bolton, who is now Trump’s national security adviser.

Planning for the campaign to decriminalize homosexuality started before the U.N. job became open. It was a topic of conversation over the weekend at the Munich Security Conference, where Grenell discussed it with a visiting congressional delegation that included Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del.; and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas.

Despite the dozens of countries that still outlaw homosexuality, LGBT rights have proliferated in recent years in many parts of the world. Two dozen countries now recognize same-sex marriage, according to the ILGA report, while another 28 recognize domestic partnerships. The last U.S. laws outlawing same-sex activity were invalidated by the Supreme Court in 2003 in Lawrence v. Texas.

Grenell, in his editorial in Bild, pointed out that India, Belize, Angola, and Trinidad and Tobago recently decriminalized same-sex conduct among consenting adults. But he said “reasonable people” must keep speaking out about laws in other places, including Iran and Chechnya, the Russian region where authorities have cracked down violently on gay people in recent years.

“While a student at Evangel University, a Christian liberal arts college in Missouri, I was taught by biblical scholars that all truth is God’s truth, no matter where it is found. The truth for LGBT people is that we were born gay,” Grenell wrote. “People can disagree philosophically about homosexuality, but no person should ever be subject to criminal penalties because they are gay.”


  1. From Vicki…Such a shame,, sad to see wonderful President Trump approving Homosexuality when Homosexuals want to see Pedophilia Legalized…..Doesn’t add up…..

    • Homosexuality is not pedophilia. Another bigoted, idiotic opinion of the dying reactionary breed. If you are thinking of METROsexuals, then make the distinction. Most of them are straight, though.

      • God hates it all…. it is an abomination to God……. and Trump will regret this … Beware the ides of March

        • How do you know what God wants? Jesus hung out with adulterers, thieves, tax collectors and more. I don’t think Jesus advocates killing homosexuals or anyone else.

        • Hush. Any Gay knows being Gay is a privilege from God. Being heterosexual is like being a Chinaman or Indian. It means nothing without extra capabilities, skills, and talents.

          The real purpose of the ACTUAL Gay man is the appreciation, love, and expression of every level and form of Masculinity. So yes, most Gays nowadays are nothing, are ZERO,,,, NAUGHT Gay, and more like little heterosexual beta males. It is straight betas who act like whiny, feminine girls, NOT Gays. It is straight betas who are cold-hearted, cold-blooded killers, of people and/or of Earth. Not. Gays. It is the disease of mindless reproducing instead of correct and proper, Natural reproduction, that is infecting the world instead of inferior bloodlines signing off and the greatest bloodlines reproducing freely. Not caused by Gays.

          Homosexuals should ideally set the scene for what is masculinity, and what isn’t. How do we know this is true? Look at masculinity in the late 40s, before anything Gay. Look at masculinity in the late 80s, after 1000% gayness flooded the decade. Every living being knows there was literal Magic in the 80s, and Gays were set to take over Western culture. That is why they were wiped out by AIDS. Nothing more, nothing less. How did the 80s allow Gays? Because no other time than the 80s was more tolerant and accepting. Today is the opposite. Today being Gay is harder than ever, because masculinity is shunned.

          Men are not aggressive, woman-worshiping, punkish, thuggish creatures. Men are the civilized world. Men are every comfort and blessing the Modern World has. Men have great intuition. Men give women and children great lives. Men build and upkeep incredible civilizations. There has never been a successful matriarchy like we are transitioning into today. And never will there be one. Woman have a purpose, and it is in a HOUSE. Deal with it. Once they leave the house, they take their inch and go a thousand miles.

    • Trump is controlled opposition, he doesn’t walk the talk. He claims prolife while 100’s of millions of babies are aborted, and claims the bible is the greatest book ever while promoting ideas that are completely opposed to it (LGBT)

        • Pedophilia is a normality within a specific ideology.

          Correct. Any follower of the Abrahamic religions. Or anything to do with Bastard Enlil and his Wicked father Anu. Fuck them both! Punish their presence on Earth like pedophiles aren’t and both Humanity and Earth will be healed. Hail Enki!

      • Oh please, that’s ridiculous. Pakistan is the capital of pedophilia…… Arab men are far more likely to rape boys (and girls). It’s part of their culture…. Just like racism, it does NOT matter what skin-color someone has.

          • To most people Pakistan is the middle east…. its a muslim thing basically… get your facts right…. I bet you believe man went to the moon… lol

          • LOL!! Except it’s people with Middle Eastern DNA and upbringing that get to decide what is Middle East, and what isn’t. Not a White Man, not a Black man, not a Chinaman, not a Mestizo, not a EuroJew, not a half-bred Caucasian (i.e. Indians, Pakistanis). And you’re not Middle Eastern. Deal with it.

            Religion has ZERO to do with what is Middle Eastern and what isn’t. Islaught pollutes the Levant just as xtianity pollutes the West + Africa and Judaism pollutes Israel. Religion doesn’t decide race and geography, EVER!!!! Never has, never will.

          • ohh for fuk sake bla bla bla. . Pakki muslim is close enough to middle eastern for the rest of us. Its not rocket science. Its all satan. allah is satan. enough said

        • In Pakistan many boys up until 14 yrs are sodomised by their uncles and family friends…it is considered a honour.. and the boys are duly rewarded… basically that makes them… yes you guessed it.. prostitutes

      • Nope, definitely not. if you are not able to resist the immoral temptation to be with one of the same sex, chances are you will also not be able to resist the immoral temptation regarding kids and other disgusting crap. Gay and pervert goes hand in hand

        • Sorry, no, the 2 are different. VERY different. For one, homo sex is consensual between adults, pedophilia is not consensual.

        • It is not a temptation. It is an inborn, clinically and scientifically-proven biological state. Asexuality, bisexuality, homosexuality, and heterosexuality. All totally normal.

          • There is nothing NORMAL about a man sticking his cock in another mans asshole and getting shit all over it. That is just sick. ewww you need help …

      • demon possessed actually..nothing to do with mental illness….. as a matter of fact all so called mental illness is also demon possession….. Ephesians 6: 12 sum sit up

        • No. Because Gays come to God all the time. He rejects no Good Gay souls. Whatever the thoughtform or demon that rules your religion is a different story. You know what you call an organized group that picks and chooses who can enter and rise up with zero intuition but a 100% agenda? A CULT.

          • Jesus will tell you and them… I never knew you……..Read your Bible… develop a relationship with the most high… or you will definately be going to hell…..Nothing surer

          • And where do your Holy Babble come from? Most of it is stolen Pagan/Semitic texts. Get a clue.

          • Looks like you just guaranteed your seat in hell dude. You just mocked Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ IS the Word of God. umm ahh, sucks to be you. No hope for you now dude. You are definitely going to hell. tch tch

    • Beware of San Francisco old AG Kamala Harris, I seen stories that she help cover up Pedo Cases & Networks involving Priests and others.

  2. Why would they try and force foreign nations to accept gays and trannies? Oh yeah forgot they are trying to create a satanic world government

  3. He learned this from ‘Cambridge Analytica’. That’s how he got elected. Telling people what they want to hear. He’s acting like the President of the World now…. Too bad, he could have been a great President. But then again, they all have that chance.

    I don’t think he wants to get re-elected. Or if he does, he’s doing what his Israeli/Chabad-Lubavitch masters are telling him to do….

    Either way, America is done.

      • I’ve watched Trump since 1970s, he has NEVER been anyone’s puppet, he is his own man, always has been. He isn’t a racist eithr, I remember clearly when he donated ONE MILLION DOLLARS to Jesse Jackson’s presidential campaign in 1988. there is a video on YT of Jesse thanking Trump for a lifetime of service to the black community. I remember all this very, very clearly. Trump used to be a Dem but quit when he, like many others, found out how corrupt they are.

    • He doesn’t want to be re elected……He has made his point… he wants to get on with enjoying being a dad to Barron….. He will not run again..
