Conservative Think Tank to Run Anti-Trans Ads Against Biden Campaign in Michigan

Politico reports that President Donald Trump's advisors are conflicted over whether to run anti-transgender advertisements as part of his reelection campaign.

According to the piece, next week, conservative think tank American Principles Project will "debut two ads in battleground Michigan that accuse former Vice President Joe Biden, who has generally used his platform to promote protections for LGBTQ youth, of endorsing 'gender change treatments for minors,' including surgery and hormone therapies for transgender youth."

"One of the ads, featuring former drag queen Kevin Whitt, warns that children 'need time' to develop a stable sense of their gender. 'As a young teen, I felt I should be a woman,' Whitt says. 'Seventeen years later, I felt I should be a man again. Treatments to change the gender of a minor are very dangerous and irreversible.'"

LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD issued a statement via Twitter condemning this choice.
