Trump Rips Arkansas Governor Hutchinson for Vetoing Transgender Surgery Bill, Reaffirms Support for Sarah Huckabee Sanders
Former President Donald Trump released a statement Thursday afternoon in which he ripped Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson for his veto of the newly passed transgender bill from the Arkansas legislature.
“JUST IN: Trump rips Arkansas Governor for vetoing HB1570 “Asa Hutchinson, the lightweight RINO Governor of Arkansas just vetoed a Bill that banned CHEMICAL CASTRATION OF CHILDREN. ‘Bye-bye Asa.” “…Sarah Huckabee Sanders will do a fantastic job as your next Governor!”
“Asa Hutchinson, the lightweight RINO Governor of Arkansas just vetoed a Bill that banned CHEMICAL CASTRATION OF CHILDREN. ‘Bye-bye Asa.”

Following Governor Asa Hutchinson’s veto of the wildly popular (among Republicans) transgender bill which would prevent minors from receiving transgender surgery or medication which was passed 70 to 22 in the House and 28 to 7 in the Senate, both chambers of the Arkansas legislature decided to override the veto.
Following the veto, Governor Hutchinson went on Tucker Carlson to defend his position and was blasted by Tucker as we previously reported on, “Carlson began by saying that although he thinks of Hutchinson as a conservative, he believes that Hutchinson has recently come out on being “pro-choice” about “chemical castration of children.”
Hutchinson accused Carlson of not being totally truthful about the language of the bill and called the bill “overbroad” and “extreme.”
“I made it clear that if this was about prohibiting procedures, sex reassignment procedures, I would have signed that bill,” Hutchinson insisted, while also somewhat contradicting himself by saying that he doesn’t believe the government should be involved with these decisions.
Carlson interrupted Hutchinson and rebutted that hormone therapies are, in fact, chemical castrations. He then asked if the government shouldn’t be involved with this, why be involved with things like minors drinking alcohol.
Hutchinson then invoked William Buckley and Ronald Reagan and said that limited government is the Republican position, once again suggesting that government shouldn’t be involved with the decisions and that it is healthcare.”
Trump joined in on the battle and went after the Governor and reaffirmed his support for Arkansas gubernatorial candidate Sarah Huckabee Sanders who is a former White House press secretary for Donald Trump. Trump previously endorsed her and has reaffirmed that endorsement following the Governor’s veto.
