The Trump administration told a U.S. appeals court that federal law does not ban discrimination against gay employees, a sharp step back from the stance of the Obama administration took on a key civil rights issue.

The U.S. Department of Justice told the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan on Wednesday that Congress never intended Title VII, which bans sex descrimination in the workplace, to apply to gay workers.

On Wednesday, the Justice Department said employers engage in sex discrimination only when they treat male and female workers differently. Objecting to homosexuality does not depend on sex, the Department said, but on moral or religious beliefs.

This came just hours after Donald Trump took to social media to declare that he was going to place a ban on transgender men/women in the Armed Forces of the United States.
