President Trump says Supreme Court ruling on LGBT workers 'very powerful decision'
WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court ruled Monday that a landmark civil rights law protects LGBT people from discrimination in employment, a resounding victory for LGBT rights from a conservative court.
The court decided by a 6-3 vote that a key provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 known as Title VII that bars job discrimination because of sex, among other reasons, encompasses bias against LGBT workers.
President Donald Trump said Monday that he accepted the court's "very powerful decision."
