NewsMax -The matter of allowing transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identities should be decided on the state level, not by the White House, Donald Trump said Friday.
“I’d leave that up to the states,”Trump said on NBC’s “Today” show. “That and other things, frankly. Let the states decide. It’s much better as a local issue. I don’t think it is a federal issue, where the federal government gets involved.”
Trump said he believes “everybody has to be protected,” but when it comes to transgender students, “you’re talking about a tiny, tiny group of the population. With that being said, everybody has to be protected. I would leave it up to the states.”
