On Wednesday night, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump appeared on the ABC talk show of proud liberal Jimmy Kimmel. During the interview, Kimmel tried to corner Trump on the issue of transgender bathrooms, which is one of the hottest topics in the country today. However, Trump managed to outfox Kimmel, denying him the satisfaction of humiliating him on live TV.
Critics of Trump have claimed that he would be fine with allowing transgender men to use women’s bathrooms. When Kimmel asked Trump about this, he clarified his opinion, telling the comedian he would rather leave this issue up to the states.
“What I support is let the states decide. … And I hope the states will do the right thing,” Trump said, according to Right Wing News.
“North Carolina did something that was very strong, and they’re paying a big price, and there’s a lot of problems,” Trump added, pointing out that many companies have been boycotting the state over the law, which requires individuals to use the bathroom that coincides with their biological sex.
Trump went on to slam the concept of making bathrooms just for transgender people, calling this “discriminatory” as well as “unbelievably expensive for businesses and for the country.”
Frankly, this is why we love Trump. This man is trying to take power away from the federal government and give it back to individual states. SHARE this story if you want Trump in the White House!
