Psaki: For Biden, Transgender Rights To Play Sports Is a Human Right

‘He wants to see kids have the opportunity to play sports and participate in a range of activities’

EXCERPT:

PSAKI: "Well, first let me say the President’s position on the rights of transgender kids to play sports is clear. He signs an executive order and he believes transgender rights are human rights and wants to see kids have the opportunity to play sports and participate in a range of activities. I would say we expected, as there often is with vote-a-ramas, there to be a range of amendments that he would oppose. And this certainly would have been one of them, but I don’t have anything more to read out for you in terms of his specific concerns."
