As of February 9, Trump Cabinet pick Ben Carson is awaiting a floor vote for confirmation.
During his confirmation hearing, Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) pressed the Housing and Urban Development nominee about whether he would enforce LGBT protections in the public housing sector. “Of course, I would enforce all the laws of the land,” Carson responded. “Of course, I think all Americans should be protected by the law. What I have said before is I don’t think anyone should get ‘extra rights.”
