A proclamation issued in Donald Trump’s name today (World AIDS Day) notes that “this deadly disease disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minorities” …. with ABSOLUTELY NO MENTION of the impact on the LGBTQ community, who have overwhelmingly felt the brunt of the disease.
It should be noted that the loser soon-to-be former president made proclamations on the three other World AIDS Days that he has been in office… where he ALSO failed to mention LGBTQ+ people….
The statement reads: “Today, our nation joins millions across the globe in remembrance of the precious lives lost to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) -related illnesses, and we reaffirm our support for those living with these diseases.
“Thankfully, decades of remarkable advancements and improved understanding have put us within reach of ending its devastating impact. Through increased awareness, revolutionary prevention strategies, and safe and effective treatment regimens, we will soon end the AIDS epidemic once and for all.
“Over the past 40 years, HIV and AIDS have infected more than 77 million people worldwide and claimed no less than 35 million lives, including those of 700,000 Americans. Currently, there are approximately 1.2 million people living in the United States with HIV, including roughly 170,000 people who have not been diagnosed.
“Additionally, it is all too clear that this deadly disease disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minorities.”
The statement adds: “Through these and other initiatives we are bringing to a close a painful chapter in human history. For the past many decades, HIV and AIDS have inflicted untold suffering on millions of people both here at home and abroad. But by the end of this decade, we will have eliminated this scourge from our country and released much of the rest of world from its deadly grip.”
