Ted Cruz on Transgender Bathroom Issue: it 'Opens the Door for Predators'

Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz said this week that policies that allow people to choose a restroom based on their gender identity “opens the door for predators.”

 

"This is not a matter of right or left, or Democrat or Republican. This is common sense. It doesn't make sense for grown adult men, strangers, to be alone in a restroom with a little girl," Cruz said in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."

 

Meanwhile, transgender TV star Caitlyn Jenner said in a video at Trump Tower in New York City that Donald Trump didn’t care what facilities she used.

 

"Anyway, oh my God, Trump International Hotel, I love this. OK, last week Donald Trump said I could take a pee anywhere in a Trump facility. I am going to go take a pee in the ladies' room."

 

"Thank you, Donald, I really appreciate it," Jenner added in the video. "And by the way, Ted, nobody got molested."

 

But Cruz said he’s not worried about transgender adults using women’s restrooms.

 

"And frankly, the concern is not of the Caitlyn Jenners of the world, but if the law is such that any man, if he feels like it, can go in a woman's restroom and you can't ask him to leave, that opens the door for predators," Cruz said.
