OPINION: Trump’s transgender bathroom initiative

Annulling the initiative of former President Barack Obama, current President Donald Trump and his administration have repealed support to public schools that allow transgender students to use the bathrooms of their choice.

This decision does not immediately change situations for public schools; a federal judge has already placed a brief hold on the support as claims in many states move up the court system.

It does, however, imply that Trump and his administration will most likely use a stronger tactic on the matter of transgender rights.

Since being sworn in Trump has made a number of changes to this country – significant changes being more in favor of conservatives.

Having a man in office with such small concern for the duties of the office is only increasing tensions between republicans and democrats throughout the nation.

Trump has shown neither formality nor sincerity to the people of the United States. He has seemed to display topics and issues that only he cares for, showing no interest in the nation’s concerns or needs instead.

He has shown bigotry above all else.

Has Trump crossed the line when it comes to “competition”?

Throughout his campaign with Hillary Clinton, and carrying over his intolerance for previous President Obama, it has always been about winning for Trump.

His revoking of the Obama administration’s guidelines on transgender bathrooms was a “quick and dirty” decision. Within only a month of being president this rapid change was clearly not looked through enough.

Was this decision made because Trump simply makes choices based on his personal beliefs for his overall benefit, or was it made because he simply doesn’t like Obama and the choices he made?

Probably a little of both.

There are many more important issues to address in this nation. Yet, apparently the main priority in the White House has been revoking transgender bathrooms in public schools – and trying to repeal Obamacare.

This is only the beginning. It’s been a little over two months since his inauguration but it’s felt like 20 years.
