The Mess Episode 7

Trump's Day One Promise

Episode Description

Trump isn’t mincing words when it comes to trans student athletes. This week on The Mess, Imara takes a look at his promise to repeal protections for trans kids in sports on day one in office. Next stop: Trump’s recent campaign rally in The Bronx. What can it tell us about the Latino vote and turning tides in traditional Democratic strongholds across the country? And a flurry of new legislation passed by the New Hampshire legislature spells trouble for the rights of trans kids in the Granite State.
