President Donald Trump's administration has come under fire after revoking the initiative to let transgender students use the bathroom of their choice. Telephones argued that public schools should have the authority to make their own decisions without any federal interference, and this has caused mass outrage with people protesting outside the Whitehouse.

So while there will be further guidance coming on this, I think all you have to do is look at what the President's view has been for a long time. But this is not something the federal government should be involved in, it is a states rights issue.

.. Through the... The Federal courts in Dallas on June 19. 2003. To do what? To overturn a ropey weight. It's not going to happen, is it? As a former Supreme Court later, I'm entitled to the right to change my mind and to go back to the courts, even if I have to go to The Supreme Court, and ask them to Rick -- reconsider Roe the Wade. You have the right but it's not going to happen, is it? Do you have information I don't? You have the Attorney General, John Ashcroft, who is the most staunch antiabortionists in the Cabinet.

But this is not something the federal government should be involved in, it is a states rights issue. In this draft letter, officials say they are withdrawing previous guidance, as many have struggled to understand and apply the statements of policy.

Schools must ensure the transgender students, like all students, are able to learn in a safe environment.

This, of course, if the end of federal protections for transgender students in public schools. I think the anti- bullying safeguards, we are told, will remain. Can you tell us in a nutshell why this matters, what it means? Well, what it means to transgender children is that they are still going to be forced to walk into a bathroom that either service they are not the gender that they are, they are not going to get into the women's room and feel like they are female, they are not going to get into the men's room.

De Blasio is seeking re-election later this year and has made opposition to Trump a key part of agenda. O’Neill, unlike his predecessor Bill Bratton, has so far avoided opining on national politics. Republicans could potentially dismiss de Blasio’s higher price tag, while funding an amount closer to O’Neill’s. O’Neill in the letter asked the city's congressional delegation to get federal funding to help the security costs borne by the city. “Approval of the above request will allow New York City to accomplish this essential dual mission of securing a presidential residence while protecting and serving the millions of Americans, who live in, work in, and visit our great city,” the commissioner wrote. Until he moved to the White House on Jan. 20, Trump's main residence and office was inside his eponymous 58-story tower on Fifth Avenue and 56th Street in Midtown, one of the busiest intersections in the city.

The White House has pushed back the release of a new executive order to replace its directive suspending travel to the United States by citizens of seven mostly Muslim countries, a White House official said Wednesday. The order is now expected to be issued "sometime next week," the official said. President Donald Trump said last week he expected to release the new order this week. Trump said the new directive will address legal concerns raised in Washington state, San Francisco and elsewhere about the original order, which was issued on Jan. 27. The order, which was quickly implemented, caused chaos at airports around the world as visa holders heading to the United States were pulled off planes or turned around upon arrival at U.S. airports. Americans were deeply divided over the order, which was condemned by prominent U.S. companies and allies before being temporarily blocked by federal courts.
