2024 Election

A Bright Orange Trump Claims the ‘Radical Left’ Invented Transgender People a ‘Few Years Ago’

Former President Donald Trump is vowing to wage war on transgender rights if he is elected in 2024 and said just that in a campaign video released on Tuesday. The campaign rhetoric in the video could have come right out of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s mouth, as he revealed his plan to “stop the chemical, physical, and emotional mutilation of our youth.”

“The left-wing gender insanity being pushed on our children is an act of child abuse,” Trump claimed in the video posted to his campaign’s Twitter account.

But Trump’s information couldn’t be more wrong. There are all kinds of evidence to suggest that providing young people with gender-affirming care is a boon for their mental health. And as LGBTQNation reports that gender-affirming care for teens and young adults has been endorsed by the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychiatric Association, and scores of other professional organizations as something that is crucial and often life-saving for transgender individuals.

And the thing is, this kind of care for adolescents rarely involves surgical intervention.

Trump, however, can care less. He’s promising to undo President Joe Biden’s policies on gender-affirming care and plans to sign an executive order instructing federal agencies “to cease all programs that promote the concept of sex and gender transition at any age.” Trump is even going so far as to outlaw gender-affirming care in all 50 states. And he plans to ensure that hospitals and healthcare providers that offer gender-affirming care will no longer be eligible for federal Medicare and Medicaid funding.

As if that isn’t awful enough, Trump went all fire and brimstone, promising “severe consequences” for any teacher or school official who “suggests to a child that they could be trapped in the wrong body,” and this could even include federal civil rights violations for sex discrimination, under the auspices of his Department of Education.

Trump has falsely claimed the “radical left” invented the concept of transgender people “just a few years ago.”

“No serious country should be telling its children that they were born with the wrong gender,” Trump said in the video. “Under my leadership this madness will end.”

What a truly disgusting man. If he’s able to do this, it means kids who intrinsically know they need help won’t be able to get it. And Trump doesn’t really care about any of this. He’s doing it because he thinks it will get him the votes he needs to win. That’s all.

I’ve included the video below.
