The issue of which public bathrooms and locker rooms transgender people should use is best dealt with at the state and local levels, the White House said Friday.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked to comment on North Carolina's decision this week to overturn a law passed last year that dictated which bathrooms transgenders could use while in public places.

"He believes in states' rights," Spicer said of President Donald Trump's opinion on the matter.

"This issue came up when Caitlyn Jenner, in particular, came to Trump Tower. [Trump] said he didn't really care. I think it is a state and local issue, not one that he believes needs federal attention."

Last summer, Jenner — a transgender formally known as Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner — walked into Trump Tower in Manhattan and used the women's restroom in defiance of politicians, including Sen. Ted Cruz, who said transgenders ought to use public restrooms that align with the gender of their birth.
