Donald Trump appeared on the TODAY show earlier this morning, and he provided answers to questions which will stick with him for a long time coming. How the answers will help or hurt his campaign is yet to be seen, but concerns among supporters is elevating quickly.
During the TODAY appearance, Trump was asked about North Carolina’s bathroom law, which, among other things, requires transgender people to use bathrooms corresponding to the gender on their birth certificate in state government buildings as well as public schools and universities. Donald Trump said that transgender people should be able to use whichever bathroom they choose.
Trump said the law had caused unnecessary hardships for the state of NC, which he said had paid “a big price” economically.

Sen. Ted Cruz lashed out at Trump stating the numerous risks of men using the same bathroom as women. Ted said that Trump was being politically correct.
