Former President Donald Trump announced a plan Tuesday to protect the nation’s children from the “child abuse” of “chemical, physical, and emotional mutilation” at the bidding of radical gender ideology.
“The leftwing gender insanity being pushed on our children is an act of child abuse – very simple,” the 2024 presidential contender began laying out his vision in a video posted to Rumble. “Here’s my plan to stop the chemical, physical and emotional mutilation of our youth.”

Trump said his plan begins on “day one,” when he vows to “revoke Joe Biden’s cruel policies on so called gender-affirming care.”
“Ridiculous,” he noted, “a process that includes giving kids puberty blockers, mutating their physical appearance, and ultimately performing surgery. On minor children.”
The plan continues:
- An “executive order instructing every federal agency to cease programs that promote the concept of sex and gender transition at any age.”
- A request for congressional legislation to “permanently stop federal taxpayer dollars from being used to promote or paying for these procedures and pass a law prohibiting child sexual mutilation in all 50 states.”
Trump said he would terminate Medicaid and Medicare funding for “any hospital or healthcare provider” that continues to participate in transgender “chemical or physical mutilation” of minors.
The former president added:
Furthermore, I will support the creation of a private right of action for victims to sue doctors who have unforgivably performed these procedures on minor children. The Department of Justice will investigate Big Pharma and the big hospital networks to determine whether they have deliberately covered up horrific long-term side effects of sex transitions in order to get rich at the expense of vulnerable patients, in this case, very vulnerable.
Trump said his administration would also “investigate whether Big Pharma or others have illegally marketed hormones and puberty blockers which are no way licensed or approved for this use.”
Recognizing that many young children are being indoctrinated in gender ideology in government schools, Trump said his education department would warn school districts and teachers they will face “severe consequences, including potential civil rights violations for sex discrimination and the elimination of federal funding,” should they suggest to children they are of a gender that is incompatible with their biological sex.
Trump continued about the significance of the role of education in his policy proposal:
As part of our new credentialing body for teachers, we will promote positive education about the nuclear family, the roles of mothers and fathers, and celebrating, rather than erasing, the things that make men and women different and unique.
In a second presidential administration, Trump said he would seek federal legislation that asserts the United States government only recognizes male and female genders.
He underscored that Title IX “prohibits men from participating in women’s sports,” and that the rights of parents supersede the views of others regarding their children’s gender identity.
“No serious countries should be telling its children that they were born with the wrong gender, a concept that was never heard of in all of human history,” Trump said. “Nobody’s ever heard of this, what’s happening today. It was all when the radical left invented it just a few years ago.”
“Under my leadership, this madness will end,” Trump asserted.
