In his State of the Union address, President Donald Trump managed to work in a paragraph that included an admirable goal: to end HIV transmission in the United States by 2030.

Trump’s throwaway promise was met with scorn by LGBTQ activists who note that the administration’s nonstop attacks on LGBTQ people and decimation of HIV funding put the lie to his rhetoric.

“The President’s call for ending HIV transmission in America is interesting, but if he is serious about ending the HIV/AIDS crisis, he must end his assault on health care and the dignity of the LGBTQ community,” Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said after the speech.

“What LGBTQ people know is this: The Trump Administration is the most anti-LGBTQ in modern history, and will seemingly stoop to any low to roll back the hard-won progress of marginalized communities in this country,” Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO at GLAAD, added.

In fact, the Trump administration has attacked the LGBTQ community so many times it can be hard to keep up with all of them. To help out, GLAAD launched the Trump Accountability Project where they document every single one.

So far, the administration has attacked the LGBTQ community 92 times to appease his evangelical base. And let’s be clear… Does anyone really believe that the religious right is going to allow the administration to reach out to men having sex with men or people using intravenous drugs? Or talk about safer sex instead of abstinence?

Sadly, this list isn’t exhaustive since there have been so many minor jabs and skirmishes it would be impossible to include them. But here are the 92 times the Trump administration has launched major attacks on the LGBTQ community.
