Biden also released a video message last week supporting the trans community, saying, “affirming your child’s identity is one of the most powerful things you can do to keep them safe and healthy.”
Trump asked the crowd, “who the hell would have even believed that we’d be talking about this stuff?”

Trump called for a Republican congressman “to stand up for parental rights” and noted he was “proud” to ban critical race theory programs within the federal government when he was in office.

Trump added that the “Republican Party is now the party of American women and American children, and we will protect women in sports.”
