First Lady Melania Trump was prevented from projecting rainbow colors on the White House to celebrate pride month in an effort to show her support for the LGBTQ community. According to sources, Melania had planned on lighting up the executive mansion in the iconic color scheme in June to mark Pride 2020. However, the White House chief of staff Mark Meadows was believed to be determined to keep the Trump administration away from the celebration.

Meadows is said to be very opposed to gay marriage. Previously, Trump himself had shown his support for Pride and has gone on record to say that he is 'fine' with the Supreme Court's ruling in favor of same-sex nuptials.

If Melania had succeeded in lighting up the White House in rainbow colors, it would have been the first time that it occurred since the Obama administration had done so after the Supreme Court ruling for same-sex marriage in 2015. This move would have been a huge change for the Republican Party which has had a history of differences with the LGBTQ community and people. 

During the Obama administration, former POTUS Barack Obama had said, "To see people gathered in the evening on a beautiful summer night and to feel whole and to feel accepted and to feel they had a right to love, that was pretty cool. That was a good thing." Melania Trump did signal her support for the LGBTQ community just before the election in a video for Outspoken which is a media project for Log Cabin Republicans.

In the video, Melania insisted that her husband supports gay people and slammed any rumors that Trump is anti-LGBTQ. Melania shared, "I was shocked to discover that some of these powerful people have tried to paint my husband as anti-gay or against equality. Nothing could be further from the truth. Donald loves helping people, and he loves seeing those around him and his country succeed."

Many people commented on social media at the news that Melania had wanted to light up the White House in pride colors. One such user shared, "@markmeadows will fade into history without any clean up on aisle 45. The corruption of #Trump #whitehouse and in every cabinet office will shock your mind to another level of outrage, it's coming, what #TRUMP did and did not do will be unveiled thanks @GSAEmily. U took orders."

Another added, "Why are they working so hard to rehabilitate this woman's image, especially now? She'll be irrelevant in two months and probably divorced not long after that." "I don't like her, but if this is true, I'll dislike her a little less," commented another user.



 



 



 

Yet another shared, "It's not her. She's liberal. She's European. It's his pathetic a** who buys women because nobody would touch him without that bank account. She's all good." "Well, before you know it, Melanoma will be walking the streets again looking for another sugar daddy," said another. Trump had come under fire from the gay community over his decision to remove housing discrimination protections for transgender people. He had also banned trans people from serving in the US army which is a move that was condemned by campaigners.
