Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden stated that he strongly supports children as young as eight being encouraged to change their gender Thursday during his town hall event on ABC.
A woman who claimed to be the mother of an eight-year-old “transgender daughter” stated the Trump administration “has attacked the right of transgender people.”
She asked Biden, “How will you, as president, reverse this dangerous and discriminatory agenda and ensure that the lives and rights of LGBTQ people are protected under U.S law?”
The former vice president responded, “I would just flat-out change the law. I would eliminate [Trump’s] executive orders, number one.”
