That's weird, why isn't the Left happy about this news?
President Trump is making efforts to decriminalize homosexuality all over the world.
The Democrats should be thrilled at this news but they're too busy calling him a racist homophobe.
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is spearheading a bid by the Trump administration to decriminalize homosexuality in dozens of countries around the world.
State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino told reporters Tuesday that Grenell and his staff were holding a "strategy meeting" in Berlin with 11 activists from "different countries in Europe." The initiative was first reported by NBC News.
"This really is not a big policy departure. This is long-standing and it's bipartisan," Palladino said. "I would say that this is a good opportunity to listen and to discuss ideas about how the United States can advance decriminalization of homosexuality around the world, and that's been our policy."
NBC reported that the push is aimed in part at denouncing Iran over its human rights record. Grenell, who is openly gay, has become the most vocal critic of Tehran among Trump's ambassadorial appointments.
Earlier this month, Grenell penned an opinion piece in the German tabloid Bild in which he criticized the recent public hanging of a 31-year-old Iranian man accused of violating the country's strict anti-gay sex laws. Iran's state-run media reported that the man also kidnapped two 15-year-old boys.
Grenell wrote that the execution "should be a wakeup call for anyone who supports basic human rights ... Barbaric public executions are all too common in a country where consensual homosexual relationships are criminalized and punishable by flogging and death."
"In Iran, where children as young as nine can be sentenced to death, gay teenagers are publicly hanged in order to terrify and intimidate others from coming out," the ambassador added. "Iran’s horrific actions are on par with the brutality and savagery regularly demonstrated by ISIS."
Bravo, Trump! Too bad the Left won't care.
