    Mostly, although he did quash the work his people at DOL and DOJ did on the executive non-discrimination order at least, "at this time."

    But his departments are stocked with some great allies, at the Labor dept, and Sean Donovan at the Housing dept. Since the great 180 turnaround of 2011, the DOJ has been pretty awesome on LGBT issues.
