DNC Chair Statement on White House Rollback of Transgender Protections

WASHINGTON – DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile released the following statement:

“It's clear that the most extreme elements of this administration are in total control. There is no group, no matter how vulnerable, that they won't target, and absolutely no Republican official who can stop them is lifting a finger to do so. Secretary Betsy DeVos and others in the Trump administration know transgender kids are at increased risk of bullying and suicide, and yet she and this entire administration signed off on this shameful action anyway. This isn't politics, it's disgusting violence that targets the most vulnerable members of our society.”
