President Joe Biden has criticised lawmakers trying to ban gender-affirming healthcare and called their actions “immoral”.
President Biden spoke about a range of pressing U.S. issues including, gun violence, abortion access, climate change and trans rights.
President Biden began speaking of his admiration for the younger generations. “You’re the single most educated generation in American history… and the most open and least prejudice generation in American history,” he said.
On the topic of trans rights, President Biden was interviewed by trans TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney who has documented her own transition through a series called Days of Girlhood.
Mulvaney announced that it was her 221st day of publicly transitioning and asked President Biden if states should have a right to ban gender-affirming healthcare.
“I don’t think any state or anybody should have the right to do that,” President Biden replied. “As a moral question and as a legal question, I just think it’s wrong. What they’re trying to do to trans persons is immoral”.
