"Leave it the way it is. North Carolina, what they're going through with all the business that's leaving, all of the strife -- and this is on both sides. Leave it the way it is," he said, referring to companies that have canceled plans to move or expand businesses in the state as a result of the law, which bans transgender individuals from using a bathroom that does not match their gender at birth.

"There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go. They use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate," Trump said. "There has been so little trouble. And the problem with what happened in North Carolina is the strife and the economic -- I mean, the economic punishment that they're taking."

Let people use whichever restroom they want, and let them personally accept the repercussions when other people feel threatened.

Pretty simple, isn't it?

It's sensible for government to direct private businesses as to how they designate their bathrooms and locker rooms?

What exactly do you think the "repercussions when other people feel threatened" are going to be allowed to be?

That's what NC did.

Trump is of the idea that it should be left as it is before North Carolina decided to open the can of worms that was legislating who can and cannot go into bathrooms. I agree with Trump, especially since transgender people have been using the old system of male and female bathrooms for years. There was never a major issue in the first place.

No, that's what the city of Charlotte did. HB2 explicitly leaves private businesses to do as they see fit.

Target agrees with Trump......................

Target Takes Stand on Transgender Bathroom Controversy

Target said Tuesday that transgender customers at its stores are welcome to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity, the latest corporate reaction to a wave of legislation seen by critics as anti-LGBT.

"We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity," the retailer said. "Everyone deserves to feel like they belong."

No shit. The TN bill (which got torpedoed, BTW ) didn't effect a single fucking thing except restroom and locker room facilities in public schools. But the LBGTBBQLSMFT crowd was shouting from the rooftops that it was going to result in state-sanctioned homo truck-draggings.

Don't know, don't care.

Punching a man in the face after he calls your wife fat, is still assault. But in a polite society it is understandable and you could argue that it is warranted.

It shouldn't be. All of the social conservative wedge issues shouldn't even be in the realm of politics but a subset of the hardline Christian conservative movement is all about using government to force their worldview on everyone else.

So you're okay with some 30 year old guy walking into and using the same restroom as your wife or better yet, your 13 year old daughter?

I know no wife and no daughter. Someday maybe you will have and maybe even get some morals

Concealed means concealed.

The fact is that these nonsense laws are completely unenforceable if a person actually can pass as the opposite sex. The guys defending this shit know this but these laws caress their feels and make them happy.

Seems like a bit of discrimination. I guess business should be required to put in a separate restroom to accommodate them.

Remember when Trump stepped on his dick with the abortion question? The response here was that Trump should have known better how to avoid that trap, even if what he said is true.

Now here comes another trap, and Trump says something sensible and completely avoids the trap. The response here is that Trump should have jumped in head first and taken the bait.
