Sessions pressures ‘uncomfortable’ DeVos to end transgender protections, report says

DeVos initially resisted signing off on the order that would rescind protections for transgender students in public schools and told President Donald Trump that she was uncomfortable with it, according to three Republicans with direct knowledge of the internal discussions. The order would reverse the directives put in place last year by the Obama administration to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms of their choice.
