White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that the Trump administration will be issuing “further guidance” on a former Obama directive aimed at protecting the rights of transgender students. “The president has maintained for a long time that this is a states’ rights issue and not one for the federal government,” Spicer said. “So while we have further guidance coming out on this, I think that all you have to do is look at what the president’s view has been for a long time, that this is not something the federal government should be involved in, that this is a states’ rights issue.”
RELATED: The question came from Washington Blade reporter Chris Johnson and I point him out with that arrow because to my knowledge he’s the only White House reporter from an LGBT outlet. Standing to Johnson’s right is repulsive Breitbart reporter Matthew Boyle, who today asked Spicer about Trump’s position on the dissolution of the European Union. Because of course.
