ACLU calls possible action anti-gay discrimination, vows to sue if true

President Trump has invited about 100 conservative leaders to the White House on Thursday, when he’s expected to sign an executive order on religious liberty.

Mr. Trump will be holding an event for the National Day of Prayer, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed. But she said there was no announcement to be made about a possible executive order.

A report by Politico said Mr. Trump will likely sign what one conservative leader described as a “very strong” order to promote religious freedom. A draft order that circulated in February would have established religious exemptions for businesses and individuals.
