In a statement to NewNowNext, Warren said that one of her first moves as president would be to “reverse the State Department’s decision to deny visas to unmarried same-sex partners of foreign diplomats.”


“Our LGBTQ friends across the country continue to face discrimination at work, at school, and in their communities,” Warren wrote in an email. “At every turn, President TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote Warren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Esper orders ‘After Action Review’ of National Guard’s role in protests MORE and his right-wing allies have been doing whatever they can to unravel their rights.”

If she makes it to the Oval Office, Warren added, she will “fight tooth and nail … to ban discrimination against LGBTQ individuals in employment, housing, and healthcare.”

A request for comment from Warren’s campaign from The Hill was not immediately returned.

Warren, one of two dozen Democrats seeking the party’s nomination to challenge President Trump, has amassed a large campaign team and unveiled multiple detailed policy proposals, but she trails in polling behind fellow contenders such as former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenHillicon Valley: Biden calls on Facebook to change political speech rules | Dems demand hearings after Georgia election chaos | Microsoft stops selling facial recognition tech to police Trump finalizing executive order calling on police to use ‘force with compassion’ The Hill’s Campaign Report: Biden campaign goes on offensive against Facebook MORE and Sen.

Recent polls including one in her home state of Massachusetts show Warren in third, with the support of 14 percent of voters.
