Betsy DeVos At CPAC: Obama’s Trans Protections Were “Very Huge Example” Of Federal Overreach [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

New Education Secretary Betsy DeVos defended the Trump administration’s decision to rescind protections for transgender students, arguing that the protections were an “overreach” of the Obama administration. “This issue was a very huge example of the Obama administration’s overreach, to suggest one-size-fits-all, federal government approach,” DeVos said on Thursday at the conservative conference CPAC. DeVos was initially opposed to the administration withdrawing from this directive, differing from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who wanted to pull the protections.
