Donald Trump is once again just doing the exact opposite of anything Obama did. Last year, Obama made it clear that public schools must allow transgender children to use the bathroom of the sex they identify with. Any school that were to go against these orders, would have funding pulled.
Trump has now pulled these guidelines.
This issue is a huge in our country being that so many people in the LGBT community along with there supporters are very passionate about this subject. Some see it as taking away a certain groups basic civil rights. Trump feels that the states and public schools should have the right to make their own decisions on the issue. The federal government should have no input.
About 200 people gathered outside of the White House to protest the new presidents instructions. Rainbow flags were waved and chants were yelled “"No hate, no fear, trans students are welcome here.” The guidelines were already put on hold by a federal judge before Trump took it a step further to pull it completely.
"We all know that Donald Trump is a bully, but his attack on transgender children today is a new low," said Rachel Tiven, chief executive of Lambda Legal, which advocates for LGBT people
