Donald Trump has said he would ban gender-affirming care for minors if he’s re-elected president in 2024.
Trump hit out at “left-wing gender insanity” and the importance of “mothers and fathers”.
In what might be his most significant attack yet on trans rights, Donald Trump described gender-affirming care for minors as “an act of child abuse” before outlining his plan to stop “the chemical, physical and emotional mutilation of our youth”.
“I will sign a new executive order instructing every federal agency to cease all programmes that promote the concept of sex and gender transition at any age,” Trump said.
“I will then ask congress to permanently stop federal tax-payer dollars from being used to promote or pay for these procedures and pass a law prohibiting child-sexual mutilation in all 50 states," he said.
Trump also said teachers or school officials who tell a child they’re “trapped in the wrong body” would face “severe consequences”, including the loss of federal funding.
In the other hand, the White House condemned “hateful and dangerous” attacks on LGBTQ rights. I have no doubts who I will vote for in the next election.
