Trump: Transgender People Should 'Use Bathroom They Feel Is Appropriate'

Donald Trump is speaking out against the controversial North Carolina law that bans transgender people from using bathrooms different from their gender at birth.

"North Carolina did something that was very strong, and they're paying a big price and there’s a lot of problems," Trump said during an interview Thursday.

The Republican frontrunner said North Carolina should "leave it the way it is" because there have been very few complaints.

"North Carolina, what they're going through with all of the business that's leaving and all of the strife, and that's on both sides — you leave it the way it is," he said. "People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate. There has been so little trouble."

Matt Lauer followed by asking Trump "if Caitlyn Jenner were to walk into Trump Tower and want to use the bathroom, you'd be fine with her using any bathroom she chooses?"

"That is correct," Trump said. He added that it would be "discriminatory in a certain way" and "unbelievably expensive" to create separate bathrooms for the transgender community.

Ted Cruz responded by accusing Trump of giving in to political correctness.

"Donald, on television this morning said he thought that men should be able to go into the girls' bathroom if they want to. Now let me ask you, have we gone stark raving nuts? This is the political correctness," he said at a rally.

ESPN fired former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling after he expressed a similar opinion to Cruz on Facebook earlier this week.
