from 21st Century Wire:
Former President Donald Trump told an audience at a Faith and Freedom Coalition event on Saturday that he would sign a law barring transgender surgeries for children.
“Something else I find hard to believe that I have to even say,” said Trump. “It’s so ridiculous. It’s so horrible and so ridiculous. I will keep men out of women’s sports.”
“And I will sign a law prohibiting child sexual mutilation in all 50 states. Prohibited,” he continued, adding: “And on day one I will reinstate the Trump ban on transgenders in the military. Because a warrior should be focused on crushing American enemies, on being strong, on having the image of being strong.”

“They have to be powerful. They have to be strong, especially when you see what’s happening in the world today, not catering to radical gender ideology.”
“I will sign a law prohibiting child sexual mutilation in all 50 states. And on day one I will re-instate the Trump ban on transgenders in the military.”

Trump also slammed critical race theory, and vowed to cut federal funding to any school which promotes it, or any ‘inappropriate political, sexual or racial content.’
“Can you believe this? Can you imagine saying this 10 or 15 years ago? I will fight for parents’ rights,” Trump told the crowd, adding “I will fight for the direct election of school principals by the parents, the parents of the school. If any principal is not getting the job done, the parents should be able to fire them immediately and select someone who will.”
Likewise, Trump vowed that he “will not give one penny to any school that has a vaccine mandate or mask mandate from kindergarten to college.”

During his 2016 campaign, Trump rarely focused on social issues and instead targeted illegal immigration, taxes, manufacturing, and growing the economy. On the other hand, his chief rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis—who is polling about 30 points behind Trump—has often focused on social issues as governor of Florida, including signing a bill earlier this year that would prohibit teachers to instruct or discuss sexual orientation or gender issues with small children.
About a dozen Republican-led states have passed laws or rules that bar transgender medical procedures and drugs for minors, and around a dozen other states are considering other measures. Around 20 states have also banned biological males claiming to be transgender women from competing in women’s sports.
Earlier this year, Trump said at a National Rifle Association (NRA) event that he would use the federal government to investigate transgender medical procedures and drugs, while accusing top U.S. officials of “pushing the transgender cult” on younger Americans, while “persecuting Christians” and “demonizing patriots.”
