If re-elected he plans to “protect children from left-wing gender insanity,” unveiling a slate of extreme policy proposals targeting transgender identities, including a federal law that recognizes only two genders and bars transgender women from competing on women’s sports teams.”
“No serious country should be telling its children that they were born with the wrong gender….Under my leadership, this madness will end,” he said.
Trump, who officially announced his 2024 presidential bid in November, added that, if he is reelected, federal agencies will be instructed to immediately cease programs that promote the concept of gender transition “at any age” and promised to prohibit federal tax dollars from being used to help pay for gender-affirming interventions.
The former president said he also plans to pass a law barring minors from receiving gender-affirming health care “in all 50 states” and intends to direct the Justice Department to investigate the pharmaceutical industry and individual hospitals to determine whether they “deliberately covered up horrific long-term side effects of sex transitions in order to get rich.”
Doctors who treat transgender youth will be booted from Medicaid and Medicare under his leadership, Trump said Tuesday, and a private right of action will be established for patients who later regret having received gender-affirming health care as minors to sue their physicians.
During his presidency Trump had already taken steps to address transgender issues in the military and sport.
Kirralie Smith, spokeswoman for Binary, said all world leaders need to take strong measures to protect children.
“Gender clinics around the world are being challenged for their cruel policies of placing children on the conveyor belt of medical and pharmaceutical intervention,” she said.
“Puberty blockers and cross sex hormones do irreversible harm to young people.”
“It is way past time for world leaders to say enough is enough.
“President Trump’s policy promises will protect vulnerable children from further harm.”
