Donald Trump revealed his personal definition of what 'a woman' is during his appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored.
Before the former President of the US angrily stormed out of his interview with ex-Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, the duo discussed a whole manner of topics, ranging from how Trump would deal with Putin if he was still in office and whether the 2020 election results were fair.
Take a look below:
Morgan asked the former President: "How much do you think the cancel culture... the woke debate is now beginning to really damage the democrats, and I'll give you an example that's been raging recently. This whole issue of transgender athletes in sport, for example, in women's sport."
Agreeing with Morgan that the inclusion of transgender athletes is 'grotesquely unfair' and Boris Johnson's plan to ban 'biological males, people born with biological male bodies, who transitioned' from competing sport, Trump resolved that the inclusion of transgender athletes in sport is 'ridiculous'.
Despite stating that he was 'not going to respond to the question' of what the definition of a woman is, Trump then proceeded to do so anyway.
He said: "A woman is somebody that swims at a certain time and doesn't get beaten by 38 seconds by somebody that wasn't even a good swimmer as a male."
Trump's definition received a stifled scoff from Morgan.
Trump's recent definition of what 'a woman' refers to 22-year-old athlete Lia Thomas. The former President attacked Thomas earlier this year on 29 January at a Texas rally.
He not only misgendered the swimmer, but also incorrectly claimed she had broken a specific record - a false claim he has once more made in his definition of 'a woman' to Morgan.
Trump has made no secret of his disdain towards the transgender community, and particularly towards transgender athletes competing in sport.
In 2021, in his first major speech since leaving the White House, the former POTUS accused the transgender community of having the potential to 'destroy women's sports'.
He called the inclusion of transgender athletes in such sports 'crazy' and stated that the 'integrity of women's sports' needed to be 'protected'.
At the Texas rally earlier in the year, the 75-year-old called transgender athlete's inclusion in sport 'ridiculous'.
If re-elected in 2024, Trump has vowed to ban transgender women from sport completely.
