President Donald Trump blasted the left’s promotion of transgender athletes competing in women’s sports during a speech at the Heritage Foundation’s 2022 leadership conference on Thursday.
Trump delivered a powerful keynote speech on how he will use his America First agenda to help Republicans win back power in the upcoming elections. The 45th president’s address marked the first time he had delivered a speech to the group since 2017.
During his speech, Trump emphasized the insanity of the Biden administration’s pro-trans policies. “We cannot have men participate in women’s sports,” he said.
Trump explained that female athletes are afraid about speaking up about the injustice of men competing in women’s sports. “The scary part is,” Trump said, “they don’t even want to talk about it.”
The 45th president continued, “The swimmers that are getting absolutely clobbered are afraid to say anything because they think it’s politically incorrect.”
During a recent Michigan rally, Trump told the American people, “The Republican Party is now the party of American women and American children, and we will protect women in sports… and not allow men to enter into the women’s games.”
Other Republican leaders have followed in Trump’s footsteps, protecting female athletes from the consequences of allowing biological males from competing in women’s sports. Last fall, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a law banning biological males from competing in female sports in public schools.
Republicans have criticized the NCAA’s policies allowing transgender athletes to compete in women’s sports. Athletes have pointed out the unfair biological advantage that has allowed swimmers such as Lia Thomas and other transgender athletes to dominate women’s sports in recent months.
While the Republican Party considers how to protect women’s rights and women’s sports, Trump has taken the leading role in criticizing the Biden administration’s transgender policies. Trump, who is not afraid to speak freely, told the Heritage Foundation, “I’m the king of being politically incorrect, and I’ll tell you it’s not right.”
