Former President Donald Trump demanded a ban on teaching radical racial, sexual and material to children and the abolition of the Department of Education during a speech to a conservative audience on Saturday evening. 

They delighted in his culture wars broadside and went wild when he introduced Riley Gaines, a 23-year-old former college swimmer, who has become a face of the campaign against transgender sports.

‘Basically, all I want to say is that it takes a brain and common sense and fifth grade biology level understanding to realise that this is blatantly unfair. It’s completely obvious,’ she said.

‘I’m just gonna say keep female sports female.’

In March, Gaines tied with transgender athlete Lia Thomas for fifth place in the 200-meter freestyle NCAA championships and has been outspoken on the issue ever since. 

And she spoke earlier at the Conservative Political Action Conference, a gathering of the Trump base in Dallas, Texas.
