While talking about his promise, former President Trump talked about Lia Thomas, 11, saying that the swimmer had broken a specific record.

He also used incorrect pronouns for the athlete and even misgendered her. 

During the rally, he said that he is pledging to ban men from participating in women’s sports.

He also referred to Thomas as the woman “who was in a swimming team” that he knows very well.

He also incorrectly said that Thomas broke a record by 38 seconds that was held for like 11 years.

The thing is, Thomas is just 11 and she did not set a new record in the race that Trump had referred to.

However, Thomas did set records at school and in the Ivy League in the 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle. She also went on to break 3 records on December 3 when she competed in Ohio’s 2021 Zippy Invitational for the University of Pennsylvania. 

The thing is, this is not the first time that Donald Trump has expressed his opposing views towards transgender athletes. 

In February of last year, the Trump said that transgender woman athletes are biological males and said that transgender competitors are smashing women’s sports records.

He added: 

A lot of new records are being broken in women’s sports, I hate to say that ladies, but you have got a lot of new records that are being shattered. Young girls and women are incensed that they are now being forced to compete against those who are biological males. That is not good for women.

Right now, many people are agreeing with what Trump is saying.
