A heated national debate over access to bathrooms by transgenders is sweeping the United States, with schools and businesses grappling with the issue that has become a hot topic in the presidential campaign.The online payments company PayPal last month scrapped plans to open an operations center in North Carolina that would have employed 400 people and several musicians, including Bruce Springsteen, have cancelled concerts.The statement sparked a backlash, with more than one million people signing a petition by the American Family Association (AFA) -- a conservative Christian group -- to boycott the retail chain.The government, meanwhile, has warned that the transgender bathroom bills violate the constitution and Wednesday ordered North Carolina to rescind its bill or risk federal funding cuts.The controversial issue has also entered the U.S. presidential campaign.Donald Trump, who is not known to hold back on sensitive topics, said last week that transgender people should be able to use whatever bathroom they want.
