So, ADF found a receptive ear within the Trump administration, on MTF transgender athletes:

The office said that, after an investigation, it had found that the policy violated Title IX, the 1972 federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in programs that receive federal funding.

By allowing transgender students to compete on female track teams, the policy “denied female student-athletes athletic benefits and opportunities, including advancing to the finals in events, higher level competitions, awards, medals, recognition, and the possibility of greater visibility to colleges and other benefits,” the office said.

I dare say that the denunciation of Chase Strangio of the ACLU will strike most Americans as sophistry if not Orwellian gaslighting.
