Donald Trump voiced his opposition to biological men competing in women’s sports during his Tuesday Presidential announcement at Mar-a-Lago.
“We will not let men, as an example, participate in women’s sports,” Trump said to thunderous applause. “Is that okay? No men, no men! My people tell me, ‘Sir, that’s politically incorrect to say,’ I said ‘that’s okay I will say it anyways if you do not mind.'”
Trump continued “we have had tremendous, tremendous problems. And you know, it is very unfair to women, just very, very unfair.”
Trump went on to defend the family as the nucleus of society, saying, “We will defend the rights of parents and we will defend the family as the center of American life. But who would think, standing up here ten years ago, fifteen years ago, that a politician — and I do not like to think of myself as a politician, but I guess that’s what I am. I hate that thought.” Trump added.
“But that a politician would be up, saying ‘we will defend parental rights.’ Of course you are going to defend it. Who would think we would even have to mention this. Who would think it would even have to be a subject to be talked about. We have to defend parental rights. Can you believe this?”
Trump has voiced his opposition to biological men competing in women’s sports for some time. Indeed, his administration supported Idaho’s ban on transgender participation in women’s sports in 2020.
As PBS reports:
“A recently passed Idaho law banning transgender women from competing in women’s sports — the first such law in the nation — received backing on Friday from the administration of President Donald Trump.
The support came in the form of a court filing submitted by the U.S. Department of Justice, saying a federal judge considering a lawsuit challenging the ban should conclude that the law does not violate the U.S. Constitution.”
The American people support these measures. While we all sympathize with those who have a discontinuity in their physical and mental life, we cannot destroy women’s sports as a result.
