Trump released a statement on Thursday calling Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R-AK) a "RINO" and a "lightweight" because of his use of veto power to block a bill that would have made controversial "treatments" for trans children illegal.

"Asa Hutchinson, the lightweight RINO governor of Arkansas, just vetoed a bill that banned the chemical castration of children. "Bye-bye Asa," that's the end of him! Fortunately for the Great State of Arkansas, Sarah Huckabee Sanders will do a fantasic job as your next Governor."

Trump was referring to Arkansas's HB-1570, a bill which would have made it a misdemeanor for people to give drugs such as puberty blockers to minors, or perform surgical procedures on them to permanently alter them from a gender-assignment standpoint.

On Tuesday, the Arkansas State House voted to overturn Gov. Hutchinson's veto, re-tracking the bill to become the law of the land in the state of Arkansas.

Hutchinson has previously called the legislation "extreme" and a "vast government overreach."

"House Bill 1570 is opposed by the leading Arkansas medical associations and the concerned expressed is that denying best medical care to transgender youth can lead to significant harm to the young person, from suicidal tendencies and social isolation to increased drug use."
