Watch Moment Trump Welcomes Anti-trans Swimmer Onstage at CPAC | The Independent

Donald Trump attacked LGTBQ+ people during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday, claiming that “left-wing lunatics” were encouraging unfair competition between women and transwomen athletes.

The president briefly welcomed Riley Gaines, a former University of Kentucky swimmer who has been critical of University Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, who is trans, for competing in the women’s division.

“We will keep men out of women’s sports,” Mr Trump said in his speech, misgendering trans athletes like Ms Thomas.
