Trump Vows To ‘End’ Biden’s Title IX Change ‘On Day One’

Former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden’s revision of Title IX to include protections for trans-identifying people in addition to the protections embedded for women and girls.

During a Friday appearance on the “Kayal and Company” Philadelphia talk radio show, Trump pointed out that Biden made the revision to the law as an “order of the president.”

But Trump finds it crazy and plans to “end it on day one” of taking office should he win the general election in November.

“We’re going to end it on day one. … That came down as an executive order. And we’re gonna change it — on day one, it’s gonna be changed. We’re going to end it,” he said/

Slamming the revision of the law as “crazy,” Trump said, “Tell your people not to worry about it. It’ll be signed on day one. It’ll be terminated.”

The Biden administration announced the change to Title IX in April over five decades after it was enacted in 1972. According to the new rules, discrimination based on gender-based characteristics, gender-based stereotypes, pregnancy or related conditions or gender identity are all classified under sex discrimination.

The new rules would make it compulsory for any high education institution receiving federal funding to allow biological boys who identify as girls to use bathroom, locker rooms and housing accommodations meant for girls. The same goes for girls who identify as boys, as they can now use facilities meant for biological boys.

The new changes to Title IX would also force teachers and students to address students or classmates using their preferred pronouns even if it does not match their biological gender. K-12 schools that receive federal funding must also use the chosen gender identity of students without issuing notice to their parents or getting approval from them.

The Biden administration’s change to Title IX was immediately met with backlash, with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton suing the Biden administration to stop the expansion.

After that, six states, led by Tennessee Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti and Kentucky Attorney General Russell Coleman, sued the Department of Education due to the Title IX overhaul this week.

In a statement accompanying the lawsuit, Skrmetti said, “The U.S. Department of Education has no authority to let boys into girls’ locker rooms. In the decades since its adoption, Title IX has been universally understood to protect the privacy and safety of women in private spaces like locker rooms and bathrooms.”

On Thursday, Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond announced that he filed a lawsuit on May 6 challenging the new rules.
