Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday defended President Donald Trump’s decision last week to renew President Barack Obama’s executive order for LGBT “anti-discrimination” policies in the federal government, saying discrimination has “no place in our administration.”

“I think throughout the campaign, President Trump made it clear that discrimination would have no place in our administration,” Pence said on ABC “This Week.”

“I mean, he was the very first Republican nominee to mention the LGBTQ community at our Republican National Convention and was applauded for it. And I was there applauding with him. I think the generosity of his spirit, recognizing that in the patriot’s heart, there’s no room for prejudice is part of who this president is,” Pence added.

The executive order was criticized for purportedly curbing religious liberty by barring groups and entities who hold moral objections to homosexuality and transgenderism. The Liberty Counsel released a statement denouncing President Trump’s decision to renew the order, saying it “imposes the LGBTQ agenda in the employment context for federal contractors.”

On Friday, Politico reported, based upon anonymous sources, that Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, encouraged Trump to keep Obama’s LGBT executive order.
