Is Trump Keeping Promises?

 Remember this to transgender students from Trump's campaign last year:

 

  • "Donald Trump Says Transgender People Should Use the Bathroom They Want  

    Dipping into a contentious issue by taking a stand many Republicans oppose, Mr. Trump told a townhallstyle event, hosted by NBC’s “Today” show at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, that when people go to the restroom, they should “use the bathroom they feel is appropriate.”

     

    Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential frontrunner, was responding to a question about a bill that North Carolina’s governor signed into law last month that bars individuals in the state from using public bathrooms that do not correspond to their biological sex — the one listed on their birth certificate. Since then, there has been a backlash that has included denunciations from businesses and celebrities opposed to the state’s action. And transgender issues more generally have pitted social conservatives against business interests that traditionally have been part of the Republican coalition in the South and elsewhere.

     

     “North Carolina did something — it was very strong — and they’re paying a big price,” Mr. Trump said. “And there’s a lot of problems. And I heard — one of the best answers I heard was from a commentator yesterday saying, leave it the way it is, right now.”

     

    He added that before the law passed, there had been “very few problems” but now North Carolina is experiencing an exodus of businesses and “strife” from people on both sides of the issue.

     

    “You leave it the way it is,” he said. “There have been very few complaints the way it is.” "
