Donald Trump claimed to be the “most LGBT friendly” President ever. His policies indicated otherwise, and a massive study recently released indicates the mental health of LGBTQ+ Americans was harmed by his presidency. The study of more than 1.06 Million Americans found that LGBTQ-identified respondents experienced a greater increase in extreme mental distress than non-LGBTQ respondents. In 2014, before Trump became president, 7.7 percent of LGBTQ individuals and 4.8 percent of non-LGBTQ individuals reported extreme mental distress. By 2019, three years into Trump’s presidency, 12 percent of LGBTQ adults reported extreme mental distress, compared to just five percent of non-LGBTQ people.
