Ted Cruz publicly disagreed with Donald Trump’s stance on North Carolina’s new law that requires transgender people use the public restroom that aligns with their birth gender. On NBC’s “Today Show,” Trump said North Carolina should have left things the way they were, allowing people to use the bathroom they feel is appropriate.

Cruz, who has two young daughters, said “it’s basic common sense” that “grown adult men — strangers — should not be alone in a bathroom with little girls.”
