Trump and Transphobia

CJ-Moki here. Rant incoming:

Back on 1/21, the day after Donald J. Trump's undeserved inauguration into the Oval Office, I went with my family to our local Women's March. Of the many groups we protested for the rights of, one of them was the transgender community.

At the 2016 Republican National Convention, now-President Trump claimed that he would "do everything in his power to protect our LGBTQ citizens", and a White House press release from 1/31 says that Trump is supposedly "respectful and supportive" of LGBTQ rights.

So far, President Trump's actions in office say otherwise.

The Trump administration has just revoked some the Obama administration's federal guidance on how to help make transgender students feel welcome at schools. This is a disturbing instance of President Trump going back on his campaign and transition-era promises. In this case, Trump promised that he would protect the rights of LGBTQ citizens (including Transgender citizens), and has contradicted the promise less than two months from the start of the Trump administration.

Donald J. Trump is a terrifying human being. As demonstrated by his administration's recent actions, Trump is unpredictable. I am terrified for the future of our country, and I hope he is replaced in the near future, hopefully by process of impeachment.

CJ-Moki, signing off.
