Trump said in his SOTU address he plans to eradicate and end “the aids crisis” once and for all. We knew that meant he would target gays and seek to harm them. This is his “plan” to eradicate aids/hiv...trying to kill people who need the meds by preventing them from obtaining them. Pence sought to cut funding for aids/hiv and give that funding to gay conversion therapy instead. ???????? Looks like that’s what they’re trying to move toward, trump already cut aids funding, & now this.

Yep, Hilary called his followers " Deplorable" but the Republicans know them as " Disposable" . No health care, no pollution controls, no work for the uneducated. What's left? The military? Yep, target practice.

We have fought hard for what, 33 years? And we are winning. New infections are down, the positive population is aging. If we can keep this momentum the virus will die out from attrition. I know, not precise, but the gist is correct. We are beating this. Why anyone would want to cease the fight is beyond me. This thing will come roaring back with vengeance. We get to overthrow the Presidency in 2 years. NOW is the time to contact Congressional leaders and state our positions. Go do so.

Trump's lawyer buddy, Roy Cohn, died of AIDS early on and I understand that Trump dumped him once he knew of the illness. A man lacking empathy such as Trump has no regard for others. Nothing he or his administration do should be a surprise anymore. HIV med premiums are already starting to climb. Aetna is leading the way in raising co-pay for Truvada, re-categorizing it in a higher tier payment. I think we're at the tip of another iceberg.

This is exactly why this president has to go! This is a bad idea & would probably mean sure death to many if this is enacted. Apparently, he doesn't care about people with hiv, cancer, mental illness.

Each day Mr. Trump peaks back yet another layer of evil. Is there no end?
