Military chief says transgender policy to remain

President Donald Trump

He went on to say, "Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and can not be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail".

Kara Zajac, a transgender woman who served in the Navy between 2010 and 2016, said she wanted to protest Wednesday because she has transgender friends still enlisted in the military who can not protest. The spokesman said in an email that Trump should have waited for a pending Pentagon review of transgender troops' service. "Orange Is The New Black" star Laverne Cox also protested against President Trump's newly imposed policy and tweeted, "My fellow trans Americans despite what some may say your existence is valuable".

"The RAND Corporation has said over and over that the healthcare costs for the transgender troops is minimum at best. the military has spent more on advertising at football games than they have on transgender health care".

Sanders said transgender service "erodes military readiness and unit cohesion" citing health costs.

Jeff Davis, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Defense, replied with "call the White House" to all related questions.

The Warriors retooled with Kevin Durant re-signing for less money than he could have and Steph Curry re-signing for a max deal. This decision left the Cavs without two prominent front-office executives at a pivotal time.

Without the United States, 19 countries allow transgender people to serve.

Ivanka Trump has been slammed for failing her "LGBTQ friends" after Donald Trump banned transgender people from serving in the United States military.

What is even more surprising is that while announcing this decision on "Twitter", Trump revoked a year-old policy and in a way sidelined his defence secretary James Mattis as well.

"Any American who meets current medical and readiness standards should be allowed to continue serving". Their love of country, and knowing what it feels like to identify as the gender not assigned at birth. They argued it was discriminatory. It's a decision that reverses a policy approved by the Defense Department under President Barack Obama. Today, Daniel is Sophia and remembers her time in the military fondly. "Our military, and the nation it defends, will be stronger". "Rather than sensationalizing division in our USA military -the greatest fighting force on earth -we need to focus on getting our troops the resources they need, and taking care of our veterans when they return home from the battlefield". Secretary of Defense Mattis himself was reportedly "appalled" by Trump's announcement, which came during Mattis's first vacation after spending months carefully evaluating the Obama-era policy. "They don't know - what does this mean to them specifically?" she said.
