Donald Trump Jr. displays his not-so-surprising ignorance over HIV awareness

Donald Trump Jr. displays his not-so-surprising ignorance over HIV awareness

Donald Trump, Jr. wandered into it over the weekend when he derided a story by Queerty about not sexually discriminating against HIV+ people.

Against a Twitter post that was titled “What you stand to lose by not having sex with people with HIV”, Trump tweeted, “Well I can think of one thing.”

And the backlash against this stigma-reinforcing comment was swift and hard.

The article which triggered Trump Jr.’s comment concerned the effectiveness of PrEP in preventing the spread of HIV, as well as how HIV+ folks with an undetectable viral load cannot spread the disease.

In that regard, I hope you are following the #PrEPUp campaign and getting available information on how to get PrEPped and protected against the transmission of HIV.
