Trump’s Bathtub Safety Rail Is ‘Dirty, Racist’
- by admin
Trump has vowed to make public a controversial proposal to build a rail system that would transport people from bathtubs to swimming pools, and that is being hailed by some as a “bathtub safety train.”
Trump is calling the proposal for a rail “bathroom safety rail” that would provide access to bathtub owners who have not already paid to install a barrier that would block a path to the tub.
The proposed “bathtubs safety rail,” which was developed by the Trump Organization, is part of a larger proposal to provide private access to public facilities, according to a news release from the Trump organization.
The plan, which is being developed in partnership with the National Park Service, calls for a wall to be constructed around the bathtub to prevent people from swimming in the bath.
But the project has drawn backlash from people who say it will put them at risk of contracting diseases like herpes or gonorrhea, and is being called “dangerous, racist and dangerous” by many in the LGBT community.
Trump has been criticized by some in the transgender community who say the plan is a threat to transgender people.
But in the same news release, the Trump administration said the proposal is necessary to prevent sexual assault and “protect the public from potential outbreaks of disease from unsafe and unhygienic living conditions.”
In a statement issued Friday, the Park Service said that the Trump plan is not a “final draft,” and that it will be subject to further public input and review.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve our public safety programs,” the statement said.
“But our safety-oriented approach and focus on safety has been in place since before we created our parks,” the Park Services statement continued.
“It’s important to remember that these are just the guidelines, and we can’t and won’t be forced to do things we don’t want to do.
We’re always open to feedback, and working with the community to help make the best decisions possible for the future.”
Trump’s Bathtubs Safety Rail plan comes amid a national debate over safety.
In November, a federal judge in San Francisco blocked a California law that would have required public bathrooms and locker rooms to have shower stalls that were 50 feet away from women, including for trans people.
Trump’s proposed Bathtub Security Rail proposal is similar to similar measures proposed in California, New York, Connecticut, and other states.
A number of transgender advocates have criticized the proposal.
The Trump organization’s statement did not mention the names of any of the bathturbators it is proposing to install, but said that they will have a “low barrier to entry” and would be installed with “tolerant” materials.
The Trump organization is also considering installing barriers in private pools that will block people from entering them, but that plan has been met with resistance from some.
A Trump spokesman did not respond to a request for comment Friday afternoon.
