Former President Donald Trump has released his plan to fight woke gender ideology in schools and to prohibit so-called “gender-affirming” care for minors.
In a video posted to Rumble and his social media platform, Truth Social on Tuesday, Trump vowed to “stop the chemical, physical, and emotional mutilation of our youth” and combat “left-wing gender insanity.”
The former president, who is currently running for reelection in 2024, proposed signing an executive order instructing federal agencies to “cease all programs that promote” the idea of “gender transition at any age.”
Trump also pledged to ask Congress to “permanently stop federal taxpayer dollars from being used to promote or pay for these procedures” and to pass legislation prohibiting child mutilation “in all 50 states.”
He also plans to push Congress to pass a bill affirming that there are only two genders, male and female, barring biological males from participating in women’s sports under Title IX and preventing minors from assuming a different gender identity without their parents’ knowledge.
Trump then vowed to prevent hospitals and healthcare providers from qualifying for Medicaid or Medicare if they perform gender transition surgeries or chemical procedures on children. Alongside the government action taken against these providers, Trump would also support detransitioners in filing lawsuits against doctors who performed these procedures on them as minors.
The presidential candidate also said he would have his Department of Justice investigate large pharmaceutical companies and hospitals to determine whether they had covered up the long-term side effects of so-called “gender-affirming care” and to discover whether they had illegally marketed hormone treatments and puberty blockers.
Trump went on to pledge that his Department of Education would take action to prevent teachers from encouraging minors into questioning their gender while promoting “positive education about the nuclear family, the roles of mothers and fathers and celebrating rather than erasing the things that make men and women different and unique.”
“No serious country should be telling its children that they were born with the wrong gender, a concept that was never heard of in all of human history, nobody’s ever heard of this, what’s happening today. It was all when the radical left invented it just a few years ago. Under my leadership this madness will end,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Biden administration officials — including President Joe Biden himself, along with Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine, a man who claims to be a “transgender” woman — have openly spoken out in support of so-called “gender-affirming care.”
