Trump: Transgenders Should 'Use the Bathroom That They Feel Is Appropriate'
CNS News ^ | April 21, 2016 | Susan Jones

Republican Donald Trump says he'd be fine with Caitlyn Jenner using the bathroom of her choice at Trump Tower. (AP File Photo)

( - Republican Donald Trump, appearing on Thursday's "Today" show, said transgenders should be allowed to "use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate."

"So if Caitlyn Jenner were to walk into Trump Tower and want to use the bathroom, you would be fine with her using any bathroom she chooses?" host Matt Lauer asked Trump.

"That is correct," Trump said.

Asked for his view on the North Carolina bathroom controversy, Trump said the state has "paid a big price" for requiring transgenders to use the restroom that corresponds with their biological sex.

"Leave it the way it is," he said.

"One of the best answers I heard was from a commentator yesterday, saying 'Leave it the way it is right now.' There have been very few problems. Leave it the way it is. North Carolina, what they're going through with all of the business that's leaving and all of the strife, and that's on both sides -- you leave it the way it is.

"There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate. There has been so little trouble. And the problem with what happened in North Carolina is the strife, and the -- the economic punishment that they're taking."


Trump said he doesn't know if he has any transgender people working for him. "I probably do, I really don't know."

Trump noted that there's a "big move to create new bathrooms" for transgenders.

"First of all, I think that would be discriminatory in a certain way. It would be unbelievably expensive for businesses and for the country. Leave it the way it is."

A few months ago I came to the realization abortion has been legal longer than I was alive. It predates my birth! GOP has done what?

They never really seem very determined to do anything about anything other than making sure government programs which fund their financial donors and allies keep getting funded.


I wonder how many millions - if not billions - the GOP raked in scamming pro life people over the abortion issue. At this point the GOP promising the pro life donor that abortion will be banned is a scam. And I say this as a pro-life person.

A Christian preacher can be fired from his second job for what he says in the pulpit, he must submit his sermons for review. BTW this is a Black Preacher.

You are correct, this is what Cruz said:

Men should not
be going to bathroom with little girls

I will add further gender confused females should not be using the Men’s rooms or Boy’s room/locker rooms either.

Most small businesses have either 1 or 2 single stall bathrooms. Go to any McD’s or Burger King, gas stations, and that is what you will find with a lock on the door. Go to the doctor and there is 1 single stall bathroom with a lock on the door. You wait your turn to use. Same goes for grocery stores.

Malls have had Family bathrooms for some time now where both genders can go in. We are talking school age children, not adults who can at least attempt to defend themselves if attacked. Young children can not and have to be protected.

Don't you think mom's of boys are scared when they have to let their young son's use a men's room where all kinds of weird junk goes on? School bathrooms are scary enough today with people having sex in them or smoking weed or masturbating. If you don't think this kind of behavior isn't going on in Middle to HS and adult men's rooms you never raised boys. Nor listen to your nightly news. Teachers having sex with students, and females getting lesser sentences than the men.

I don’t know how you legislate proof of appropriateness of facility use. You can’t ask someone to reveal their private parts, can you? If you demand that only certain people can go into certain facilities, would that also keep you, as a mom, from escorting your sons into the bathroom? It is a mess! Is it time to bring back the bathroom attendant?
The culture war has probably been lost.

I was listening to Michael Savage’s show yesterday. He had an idea to change the signs to Adults and Children. A caller who was a plumber said it might in theory be a good idea, but there were occupancy building codes in place which would make this idea unworkable for now. Laws would need to be changed. It’s a bigger issue than many realize.

Very simple and smart thing to do is to build extra gender specific bathrooms. One for Men & Boys, one for women & girls, on for trans genders, one for gays and one for lesbians. Problem solved equality for all.

Well, you’re quite the link lister aren’t you?

Each and every one of those links you posted has been thoroughly reviewed by numerous members of FR.

None of them indicate Donald Trump to be a ‘con artist’. He has been truthful throughout, kept nothing hidden; he’s been remarkably transparent.

Support of Donald Trump does not hinge on perfection. It hinges on the really big stuff. Such big stuff you seem to be oblivious to as you waddle about spending so much time cataloging minutiae. It may be important to you but statistically, it is small relative to other more important issues. Bathroom concerns are a symptom of something much larger and that much larger thing is not checked by confronting Donald Trump about bathrooms.

Donald Trump is not Jesus Christ but he’s going to President of the only civilization that gives followers of Christ the right to determine what is best for their own lives and to fight to keep those rights. He is not going to sign any law allowing less than 1% of the civilization to deny rights to Christians nor is he going to propose any legislation leaning to one side or the other.

Trump’s tasks shall be to repair and restore the framework that makes the civilization vibrant. It’s up to each Christian within that framework to fight for the moral environment that their families are raised in. Donald Trump may appear as a social liberal or libertarian on some issues but importantly they are not on his list and never will be on his list of the repair and restoration he envisions. Bathrooms are to be left as is, and the laws governing them. The problems associated with bathrooms are too small to be concerned about, They are not a priority. If commercial establishments have a problem with perverts of any stripe visiting women’s restrooms, they can convert the bathrooms to storage closets and put up port-o-potties out back next to the dumpsters, or less drastically, convert the bathrooms to single stalls with separate locking doors.

Cultural Marxism is the enemy here, not Donald Trump. Those that would put Trump’s head on the chopping block over bathrooms are those that will lose more ground to the Cultural Marxists. Such people are really dimwitted because they don’t see how the war should be won. They only see a skunk or rat out their window of view and react with peashooters, then whine that the American President isn’t speaking up about the rat and skunk infestation.

It’s up to Christians like those in North Carolina, not just the American President, to stand up to Cultural Marxism. Donald Trump said he would let the rats and skunks burrow into your privacy because they only appear with an incidence rate of about 0.01% which means you will likely never see them, in other words, the problem is so small as to not warrant a bevy of laws in reaction. What you do see is local ordinances such as the one in Charlotte that protected the rats and skunks, after all, rats and skunks are living beings with rights, so they think. The Governor of NC signed a law that said rats and skunks have to use the rat and skunk latrines and Donald Trump remarked that was unnecessary because you will likely never see them to begin with. I agree with the Governor of North Carolina but I am voting for Donald Trump because his role is zero in the NC story.

How to stop Cultural Marxism? By electing Ted Cruz, a person who can’t even tell when the biggest rats are lying to him?

Cultural Marxism approaches through the courts and very little through the legislatures. It is the courts that are compromised. You will never win with courts by making sure your executive wears a halo. You win only by understanding what it takes to organize an Article V grassroots. Such has been done before in the politics that led to the 17th Amendment, so it can be done. The more that Americans understand this part of their history, the better chance they have of stopping Cultural Marxism and having a government that reflects their deepest values.

Cultural Marxism (especially time 2:11)

Article V (especially time 5:14 and 8:23)

And here is an illustration of how to get at the root of Cultural Marxism and pull it out:


To restore effective suffrage of State Legislatures to Congress, the following amendment is proposed:

Section 1.
A Senator in Congress shall be subject to recall by their respective state legislature or by voter referendum in their respective state.

Section 2.
Term limits for Senators in Congress shall be set by vote in their respective state legislatures but in no case shall be set less than twelve years nor more than eighteen years.

Section 3:
The seventeenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.



To redress the balance of powers between the federal government and the States, the following amendment is proposed:

Section 1.
Upon a majority vote in three-fifths of state legislatures, specific federal statutes, federal court decisions and executive directives of any form shall be repealed and made void in any state, territory, or possession of the United States.

Section 2.
State legislatures in agreement with results derived from Section 1 of this amendment shall sign a state quash authority directive delineating the specific federal statutes, federal court decisions or federal executive directives affected, said directive addressed and delivered to the Congress of the United States becoming immediately effective as of the date of delivery.

Note that Cultural Marxism is Globalism, it is the new communism with the same intentions.

To combat Cultural Marxism further, another state generated Constitutional amendment or 30-State Quash is necessary to target the role of world central banks and monetary authorities such as the IMF, specifically that of the Federal Reserve which is the central bank of the United States.

Why is this action necessary to launch from states? Because the federal government will never do it as it is addicted to the fiat currency creation of the Federal Reserve.

Why must it target world central banks and world monetary authorities? Because the importation of fiat currency must be addressed.

Here’s an illustration of how the Federal Reserve is involved in Globalism:

“In Mexico, the Mexican bank known as Banamex is actually owned and controlled by Citibank. Note that Mexican law requires that all investments in Mexico be apportioned so that 40% of the investment is in Mexican government bonds, in effect a Mexican tax that is reimbursable upon closing out the investment. A new Mexican commercial entity is registered under the name of Ford Mexico and seeks investment of 60 billion pesos (about 2.5 billion US Dollars) in exchange for issuing its Mexican corporate bonds. Banamex agrees to loan Ford Mexico the requested amount after consulting with the Mexican government and agreeing to provide 40% of the issued corporate bonds in exchange for Mexican government bonds in a government account thereby satisfying the 40% legal requirement.”

Where does Banamex get the 60 billion Mexican pesos? It gets it in an electronic currency conversion with its parent Citibank in New York. Where does Citibank get the 2.5 billion US Dollars? From the Federal Reserve at 0%. The Federal Reserve creates it digitally for Citibank.

Ford sees that they can move an entire American industry where labor costs less than 15% of the cost in the US, with no taxation and no startup costs, funded ultimately by the Federal Reserve in an off-book transaction.

Now you may understand why Donald Trump calls for auditing the Federal Reserve.

Globalists want the United States and Mexico to look similar in terms of a global view of trade and economics. They target a wealth redistribution and economic equalization of the two countries.

Globalism and Cultural Marxism are joined at the hip. Cultural Marxism is the tool used to homogenize the variant cultures by installing a global human rights legal system. The bathroom issues of this thread are a part of that, a very small microscopic part of the bigger Cultural Marxism.

Try to understand that the Cultural Marxists and the Globalists want Donald Trump taken down, gone and they are happy to see you join them by getting distracted with bathroom issues. Importantly, understand that Globalists and Cultural Marxist don’t give a damn about bathrooms and transgenders, BUT they know that these issues distract you greatly so they use them to divide and conquer.

Constitutional amendments are hard to do but you have no other option. The people sent to Washington DC are not going to do it for you. You have got to take the time to study and understand what you’re up against. You then need to take it to your families, neighbors, and communities and start the discussion without getting off-subject about bathrooms. Bathrooms are but one arrow shot at you to break you up from organizing a real counterforce.

Keep your eye on the ball coming at you and not the flea buzzing about your ear. You have to solidly hit the ball and then you can swat the flea when you’re on base.

Actually no. As you can see in the posting just above, someone else drew me to this again and as I traced it back to what was being responded to, I saw your post.

I shouldn’t have gloated, poor taste but it goes to show how poor people can be at aggregating salient facts and projecting an outcome.

I haven’t always been right, but I was in this case.
