North Carolina recently passed a bill that prevents individuals from using bathrooms that were not aligned with their biological sex, the one they were born with. The law was directed at the growing transgender population, aiming to bar men who identified themselves as women, and vice versa, from entering the bathroom that they chose to. However, the federal government has taken issue with the bill, calling it discrimination. They demanded that North Carolina make changes, but the state retaliated by saying that the government was overreaching. The two are set to face off in court after North Carolinian officials sued the U.S. Justice Department.

Trump’s approach to debt diverges from the establishment Republicans’ approach. Whereas politicians such as House Speaker Paul Ryan say they would bail out Medicare and social security, Trump says that we would not touch any of the entitlement programs.
