Trump to Eviscerate Obama Transgender Bathroom Rule

Why are some conservative still sneering at this president, who is doing everything they wanted and has the guts and backbone to stand by it, no matter the political correctness police.

From the Washington Examiner:

Justice Department officials plan to issue new guidance on protections for transgender students that will effectively reverse Obama-era recommendations and ensure those issues are decided at the state level going forward.

The Supreme Court is slated to hear oral arguments late next month on a case involving a transgender teen from Virginia who sued the local school board for the right to use the men’s bathroom on campus despite being born a female. The debate over transgender “bathroom bills” gained increasing attention late last year after the Obama administration sent guidance to public schools saying they should allow transgender students to use whichever bathroom matches their gender identity.

“The president has maintained for a long time that this is a state’s right issue and not one for the federal government,” Spicer said when asked for Trump’s position on the hot-button issue. “So while there will be further guidance coming out this, I think that all you need to do is look at what the president’s view has been for a long time.”

One Response to Trump to Eviscerate Obama Transgender Bathroom Rule

  1. Just a reminder that the Obama transgender rule for public schools was not “recommended”:

    “New York Times, May 12, 2016
    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.
    A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.
    It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.”
    The NYT calls it an “implicit threat” and we all agree.
