Joe Biden Blasts Trump Administration For Eliminating Protections For Trans Youth

Joe Biden was honored for the Help Hero Humanitarian Award by Help USA in New York City, last Thursday.

During his acceptance speech, the former Vice President slammed President Trump's administration for rolling back protections for trans youth.

He said:

“As much great work as we’ve done, we face some real challenges ahead. We thought things were moving in the right direction.

"But there’s a changing landscape out there, folks, and we have a hell of a lot of work to do.” 

He added:

“Instead of focusing on the fact that 40 percent of the homeless youth on the street are identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender [and] rejected by their families out on the street, and what do we do about that, we’re now focusing on whether or not a transgender child, which bathroom they can use.”
