WATCH: Psaki asked about Biden order’s effect on transgender competitors in girls sports

Tuesday, White House Press secretary Jen Psaki was asked a question about the effect of a Biden order on transgender competitors in girls sports.

Psaki was asked “Does the president have a message for local school officials in dealing with these kinds of disputes that are already starting to arise between trans girls who are competing against cis girls, and a level playing field, particularly in high school sports when it leads to college scholarships. Is there any kind of messaging or clarification that the White House wants to give on the executive order?”

Psaki replied “the president’s belief is that trans rights are human rights… In terms of the determinations by universities and colleges, I would certainly defer to them”
