–White House spokesman Jeff Tiller, speaking with CNN. The White House complex now offers a gender-neutral restroom, letting guests and staff use a restroom that matches their gender identity.

The move is “in keeping with the Administration’s existing legal guidance on this issue and consistent with what is required by the Executive Order that took effect today for federal contractors,” Tiller added.
