Donald Trump is finding himself under attack from conservative Republicans after he appeared on the ‘Today’ show and defended transgender people, saying they being able to “use the bathroom they feel is appropriate.”
Trump’s main rival, Senator Ted Cruz wasted no time in attacking Trump’s liberal position on the hot button issue. “Donald Trump is no different from politically correct leftist elites,” Cruz wrote in a statement. “Today, he joined them in calling for grown men to be allowed to use little girls’ public restrooms. As the dad of young daughters, I dread what this will mean for our daughters and for our sisters and our wives. It is a reckless policy that will endanger our loved ones.”
Doubling down on his transgender bathroom stance, Trump said “That is correct” when asked if he would be comfortable with Bruce Jenner coming into Trump Tower and entering the woman’s bathroom.
According to Breitbart, Cruz admonished Trump for pretending to be conservative. “This is not real tolerance,” Cruz wrote, “The left wants to force it’s belief system onto Americans across the country and silence people of faith in the public square. Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump is all to eager to join them. This simply confirms that the same man who favored partial-birth abortion and still supports public funding for Planned Parenthood will sacrifice principle on the altar of political correctness. Trump will not defeat political correctness. Today he bowed to it.”
Putting personal preference aside, who do you think is right on this issue? Trump or Cruz?
