“Women’s sports as we know it will die” if President Joe Biden and Democrats get their way with policies like the so-called “Equality Act,” former President Donald Trump warned on Sunday.
Biological males who identify as women are destroying the sport by illegitimately smashing records set by actual females, Trump explained in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC):
“Joe Biden and the Democrats are even pushing policies that would destroy women's sports. A lot of new records are being broken in women's sports. Hate to say that, ladies, but got a lot of new records. They're being shattered. You know, for years, the weightlifting, every ounce is like a big deal for many years. All of a sudden, somebody comes along and beats it by 100 pounds.
“Young girls and women are incensed that they are now being forced to compete against those who are biological males. It’s not good for women. It's not good for women’s sports, which worked so long and so hard to get to where they are. The records that stood for years, even decades, are now being smashed with ease. Smashed.”
What’s more, no coach is going to want to recruit female athletes to compete against males who identify as females, Trump added:
“If this this does not change, women's sports as we know it will die, they'll end. It'll end. What coach, if I'm a coach, you know, I want to be a great coach. What coach, as an example, wants to recruit a young woman to compete if her record can easily be broken by somebody who was born a man? Not too many of those coaches around, right? If they are around, they won’t be around long, right, because they’re gonna have a big problem when their record is…’We're 0-16, but we're getting better.’”
And, if you think this is crazy, “You haven’t heard anything, yet,” if the integrity of women’s sports isn’t protected, Trump warned:
“No, I think it's crazy. I think it's just crazy, what's happening. We must protect the integrity of women's sports. So important. Have to.
“And I don't even know: is that controversial? Somebody said, ‘Well, that's going to be very controversial.’ I said, ‘That's okay, you haven't heard anything, yet.’”
