Trump Nixes Protections for Vulnerable Americans

Breaks Campaign Promise to LGBTQ Community

NY Times: “President Trump on Wednesday rescinded protections for transgender students that had allowed them to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity.”

“The consequences of this decision will no doubt be heartbreaking. This isn’t a states’ rights issue; it’s a civil rights issue,” said Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign.

“Social conservatives, one of Mr. Trump’s most loyal constituencies, applauded him for honoring a pledge he had made to them during the campaign.”
