Fresh off promoting "LGBTQ for Trump" tees for Pride month, President Donald Trump's administration is targeting transgender people...again.

The Department of Health and Human Services proposed a new rule that would woefully walk back an Obama-era regulation defining sex-based discrimination to include gender identity.
