      General practice from what i know is that spouses of diplomats are allowed diplomatic visa is they are in fromal relationship. Exception was offen made for same sex marriage due to lack of legal means to reach such status. Since same sex marriage is now legal in US Trump administration extended the rule to them. The issue is that in some countries same sex marriage is a crime or is not legal even if having same sex relationship is not.

      As far as i know its not unheard practice to send those homesexual officials who cant't be otherwise dealt with to overseas posts if they are societaly inconvinient at home.

      On other hand timing seem to suggest its intentional attempt to be a d..k by Trump and at same time catering to some of his more retarded voters.

        Not only did Trump lie when he said he was going to do good for the LGBT community, but now he is actively persecuting them just to be a double-d!ck.

          another cart before the dead horse move, basically it's forcing global SS marriage without the tools to develop that, same with the tariffs, no infrastructure to support shipment embargoes or to reset prices...

            Since the policy was put forth in July and only bought to the worlds attention by outsiders I'm going to say [citation needed] on that claim.

            That said, and as others have pointed out many nations around the world do not allow Gay/Lesbian/et. Al. to marry or even enter a civil partnership. They're getting dicked over for relatively petty reasons as far as I can see.

              The state department began phasing out the SSDP starting in 2015 with the scheduled deadline of Sept 30, 2018. It does not affect legal spouses and is part of the equality of marriage policy, which is the law of the land.

                So.... in other words under the Obama administration?

                So... in other words that's not Trump's fault?

                  Exactly, and it equalizes all marriages. Gay couples do not get special privileges.

                    Ok.


                    So the actual d*ck move is to make it as if Trump was responsible.

                        Other than an attempt to smear Trump, this is not news.

                        Well except for the timely reminder to move UN HQ to some third world shithole.

                            Yes that would be of big benefit to rogue state like Israel. Too bad it would hardly be of any benefit to USA as any world power would kill for opportunities housing such orgnization HQ brings.

                              I find it amusing when Europeans lecture me about world affairs.

                              Thanks for the laugh.
