Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida said he would not support the Equality Act for LGBTQ people because President Donald Trump could declare himself the first female president:
Consider this possibility — if President Trump were to say, I am now the first female president? Who would celebrate that? Would those who support the legislation think that’s a good thing, or would they be dismayed? Bad actors have already weaponized some ostensible equality laws for their own benefit.
