Obama’s transgender bathroom policy that allowed students to use restrooms that correspond with their gender identity may be changed soon.
The White House spokesman, Sean Spicer said that the Trump administration is working to change the transgender guidelines that were created under Obama by the Justice Department.
Liberals are already reacting off of the headlines.
Now is the time for every single person to stand up for transgender kids under attack by the Trump Administration. #ProtectTransKids

Trump's just kicked young transgender people in the teeth, but I was assured that him holding a rainbow flag meant he was pro-LGBT.

The truth is, Trump wants to make this a state issue according to Spicer.
“I think that all you have to do is look at what the president’s view has been for a long time, that this is not something the federal government should be involved in, this is a states’ rights issue.”
Trump is not for or against the rules for the Transgender bathrooms, but is against the federal government’s over reach into personal issues.
In an interview with Fox & Friends in May of 2016, Trump said, “It’s a new issue and right now, I just don’t have an opinion. I’d like to see the states make that decision.”
It looks like his stance during the campaign is exactly his stance as president.
Trump is defending state’s rights and not attacking the LGBT community.
