Joe Biden warns transgenders they are under attack under Trump

Former Vice President Joe Biden, warning of transgender Americans “under attack” in Republican-led states, on Wednesday challenged the nation’s LGBT community to push back against President Donald Trump’s administration.

“Hold President Trump accountable for his pledge to be your friend,” Biden declared at a private LGBT gala hosted by the Democratic National Committee in New York. “Just because you don’t have Barack and me in the White House doesn’t mean it’s time to give up, keep quiet, stay on the sidelines.”

Trump vowed to protect the LGBT community during his campaign, but critics say he hasn’t kept his word since taking office. The issue has earned relatively little notice in Washington as political leaders focus on health care, taxes and multiple investigations into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. FOX
