This is awesome! Donald Trump recently spoke out for Caitlyn Jenner and the entire transgender community. The businessman believes that all trans people should have the right to use whatever bathroom they choose.
Of all the hateful things Donald Trump, 69, has said throughout his campaign, he is surprisingly open when it comes to the policies and rights of the transgender community. The politician opened up to Matt Lauer, 58, about his views on the LGBT community, saying that he would have no problem letting Caitlyn Jenner, 66, use whatever bathrooms she chooses if she came to his offices. And that’s a surprisingly open viewpoint for Donald to take.
For once, Donald has finally taken his foot out of his mouth to show his support for someone other than himself. In an appearance on the Today show on April 21, Donald spoke out for the transgender community, and even gave some props to Caitlyn in the process. The businessman who is most known for speaking against most people on this Earth, says that he would have no trouble allowing a transgender person to use the bathrooms in his office.
While discussing the answer from a Twitter user who asked how he plans to be an inclusive president, Donald brought up the current state of affairs in North Carolina. He said, “Well look North Carolina did something that was very strong and they’re paying a big price and there’s a lot of problems. And one of the best answers I heard was from a commentator yesterday saying, ‘Leave it the way it is right now, there have been very few problems, leave it the way it is.”
In typical Matt interviewing style, he didn’t let the candidate stop his answer there. In fact, he asked him if he had any LGBT people working at his organization, to which Donald responded very honestly, “I don’t know, I really don’t know. I probably do, I really don’t know.” Before Matt went on to ask him whether he would let Caitlyn use whatever bathroom she chooses, Donald said, “That is correct.”
Not an over the top cry of support from the businessman, but you take what you can get when it comes to Donald. Good to see he values equality in his campaign and at his work place.
