Former Vice President Joe Biden voiced disapproval with the Trump Administration over its rollback of transgender rights during an impassioned speech while accepting his award from Help USA in New York City on Thursday.
Biden’s speech to accept the Help Hero Humanitarian Award from the organization that provides shelter and housing to homeless people including veterans, children, and victims of domestic violence focused great deal on safeguarding protections for women but he pointedly took aim at the Trump administration over its treatment of LGBT, specifically trans, people.
“As much great work as we’ve done, we face some real challenges ahead. We thought things were moving in the right direction,” Biden said, touching on the Trump administration’s unraveling of trans protections. “But there’s a changing landscape out there, folks, and we have a hell of a lot of work to do.”
Without mentioning Trump or the administration by name he suggested that they were wrongly focused on which bathrooms transgender children use when LGBT homeless kids face a myriad of issues.
New York state pay attention, your protections are just by a stroke of a pen by the governor and another governor can just as easily take them away.

"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
