David Weigel, The Washington Post Published 6:42 pm, Sunday, June 24, 2018 Toward the end of his speech to Nevada Republicans on Saturday, President Donald Trump issued a warning: Democrats were working to abolish Immigration and Customs and Enforcement, or ICE.

He’d like to think all that’s behind him now. People at the stores where he and his husband shopped for their wedding flowers and centerpieces six years ago “were genuinely happy for us,” said Glass, 68, a retired sales executive who lives in Falmouth and drives for Uber part time.But old fears rush in when he recalls visiting a gay friend in a senior facility.
