Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is an American politician and attorney who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. A member of the Democratic Party, Barack Obama was the first African-American president of the United States. He previously served as a U.S. senator from Illinois from 2005 to 2008 and an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004.
The Trump administration announced a proposal on Wednesday to allow federally-funded housing services to reject individuals whose gender identity does not match the sex they were assigned at birth.
The proposed rule, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson, would “better accommodate religious beliefs of shelter providers.” The proposal rolls back provisions added in 2016 under President Barack Obama.
