Republican US Presidential Hopefuls On The Bathroom Law

Donald Trump claims “very few problems” and “there have been very few complaints the way it is.”

Dipping into a contentious issue by taking a stand many Republicans oppose, Mr. Trump told a town­hall­style event, hosted by NBC’s “Today” show at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, that when people go to the restroom, they should “use the bathroom they feel is appropriate.”

“North Carolina did something — it was very strong — and they’re paying a big price,” Mr. Trump said. “And there’s a lot of problems. And I heard — one of the best answers I heard was from a commentator yesterday saying, leave it the way it is, right now.”

He added that before the law passed, there had been “very few problems” but now North Carolina is experiencing an exodus of businesses and “strife” from people on both sides of the issue.

“You leave it the way it is,” he said. “There have been very few complaints the way it is.” New York Times

Senator Ted Cruz  full response to Trumps support of grown men using women’s restrooms.

“Donald Trump is no different from politically correct leftist elites. Today, he joined them in calling for grown men to be allowed to use little girls’ public restrooms. As the dad of young daughters, I dread what this will mean for our daughters – and for our sisters and our wives. It is a reckless policy that will endanger our loved ones.”…

CRUZ: Well, a part of it, Glenn, this is not complicated to make the case… Most people know this intuitively and, as you know, my daughters are five and eight. My five-year-old knows the difference between boys and girls. You’ve got the Obama education department suing to try to force junior highs to let teenage boys shower with teenage girls.

BECK: Oh my gosh.

CRUZ : That’s crazy. It’s just, that’s not a reasonable position. It is simply crazy. The idea that grown men would be allowed alone in a bathroom with little girls… you don’t need to be a behavioral psychologist to realize bad things can happen and any prudent person wouldn’t allow that. It is only the lunacy of political correctness –if he had fired Curt Schilling—for making the rather obvious point, that we shouldn’t allow grown adult men strangers alone in a bathroom with little girls… That’s a point anyone who is rational should understand.

BECK: I will tell you that we always hear from the left on gun control… if it would just save one person then we should do it. If this would just save one little girl from being molested by a heterosexual pervert, we should do it.

CRUZ: Glenn, I was the Solicitor General of Texas for five and a half years. I handled case after case after case of child molesters, of pedophiles, of people who abused little kids. These are serious issues and when you deal with people who are repulsive perverts and criminals… there are some bad people in the world and we shouldn’t be facilitating putting little girls alone in a bathroom with grown adult men. That is just a bad, bad, bad idea.
