Trump: Transgender Restrooms Is A States’ Rights Issue


By Hunter Wallace

Good to hear.

I think it is safe to say that Trump would never abuse his powers as president to force the radical LGBT agenda on the states. At the same time, I don’t think he is comfortable addressing the issue. If the federal courts were to strike down these laws, as they did with the gay marriage bans, I can’t see Trump going to war over it:

“The federal government should leave sexual regulation of the nation’s K-12 bathrooms and locker rooms to state and local governments, Donald Trump said in multiple interviews Friday.

“I believe it should be states’ rights and I think the states should make the decision, they’re more capable of making the decision,” Trump told the audience for ABC’s Good Morning America. When pressed, he repeated his pro-federalism policy: “I just think it should be states’ rights. I think many things actually should be states’ rights, but this is a perfect example of it.” …”

Regardless, we can expect far worse from Hillary Clinton. In hindsight, we clearly underestimated Obama’s willingness to push the envelope on social issues in 2008 and 2012. Unlike Hillary Clinton, we know that Trump listens and responds to pressure from his base on various issues ranging from H1-B visas to Syrian refugees to tranny restrooms.
