Trump Slams House Dems' Equality Act Hurting Women

House Democrats passed the Equality Act, but former President Donald Trump trashed the bill for its potential to destroy women's athletics by permitting transgender athletes.

"Young girls and women are incensed that they are now being forced to compete against those who are biological males," Trump said during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Sunday in Orlando, Florida.

"It's not good for women; it's not good for women's sports, which worked so long and so hard to get where they are."

Transgender women who were born a biological male will ultimately, unfairly take opportunities not just to participate, but to compete, and to win, Trump said.

"The records that stood for years, even decades, are now being smashed with ease," he said. "If this is not changed, women's sports as we know it will die. It'll end."

Collegiate coaches looking to remain competitive are going to give scholarships and opportunities to the best competitor, he continued.

"What coach, as an example, wants to recruit a young woman to compete if her record can easily be broken by somebody who was born a man," Trump said. "Not too many of those coaches around, right?

"If they are around, they won't be around long, because they're gonna have a big problem when they're 0-16.

"It think it's crazy what's happening. We must protect the integrity of women's sports, so important."

The bill passed 224-206 on the basis of the slim Democrat majority last week.
