Trump Cancels Obama’s Protections on Transgender Bathrooms in Schools

The Social Engineering Program Has Officially Ended

The Washington Post reported late on Wednesday afternoon that President Trump ended one of Obama’s most controversial and liberal policies: federal protections for transgender bathrooms in schools.

From The Washington Post:

The Trump administration on Wednesday revoked federal protections for transgender students who sought the right to use the public school restrooms that match their gender identity…

The move is a significant victory for America as a whole as polls showed that two-thirds of the country strongly opposed Obama’s radical transgender bathroom agenda.

From Fox News:

A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General’s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not “undergo any formal public process” or explain how the directive was “consistent with the express language of Title IX,” the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities.

“This is an issue best solved at the state and local level,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said. “Schools, communities, and families can find — and in many cases have found — solutions that protect all students.”

“Congress, state legislatures, and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “The Department of Justice remains committed to the proper interpretation and enforcement of Title IX and to its protections for all students, including LGBTQ students, from discrimination, bullying, and harassment.”

The move is likely to start a domino effect of states getting rid of transgender bathrooms in schools now that the federal government is no longer backing this social engineering program.
