Trump offers support for bathroom access based on gender identity

By Colleen Jenkins WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump sided on Thursday with those criticizing a controversial new North Carolina law requiring transgender people to use government and school bathrooms that correspond with the sex on their birth certificate. Trump said the law was unnecessary and people should be allowed to use whichever bathroom feels appropriate. “There have been very few complaints the way it is,” added Trump, who is front-runner to be the Republican presidential nominee in November’s election.
