Trump pledges, if reelected, to end federal programs promoting gender transition
"I will sign a new executive order instructing every federal agency to cease all programs that promote the concept of sex and gender transition at any age," Trump said.
Former President Trump says if reelected he will end President Biden's policies on gender-affirming care and sign an executive order instructing federal agencies to end all programs promoting gender transitions.
"I will revoke Joe Biden's cruel policies on so-called 'gender-affirming care.' Gender affirming? A process that results in the physical mutilation of minor children," Trump said Monday in Palm Beach, Florida, at an event for Club 45 USA, which bills itself as the nation's largest club of Trump supporters.
"I will sign a new executive order instructing every federal agency to cease all programs that promote the concept of sex and gender transition at any age. It's enough," Trump also said.
During his first year in the White House, Trump banned transgender people from enlisting in the military and ordered the Defense Department to stop funding gender-reassignment surgeries, except for those already in progress.
Republican lawmakers introduced a similar ban on transgender service members last week.
