Trump Bans Transgender People in Military

Trump says his administration will block transgender people from serving in the military

In an interview with The Christian Post, Moore maintained that Trump's decision to rescind the Obama-era military policy had more to do with his discussions with military personnel than the influence of conservative evangelical leaders. Under the Obama administration, America witnessed the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policies which for so long shielded the military from political institutions like the ACLU or other groups who want to use the military as a vehicle for LGBT rights.

Hate crimes against non-whites are more likely across the board-and in the LGBTQ community, POC comprise more than half of the survivors, and about 24 percent of undocumented trans people have experienced physical attacks.

Sanders said in a press briefing, "This was about military readiness".

Almost a week after President Donald Trump wrote a tweet that appeared to reinstate a ban on transgender service members, the United States military is still awaiting formal direction from the White House regarding any potential policy changes, a spokesman for the Pentagon said Monday. "There will be no modifications to the current policy until the President's direction has been received by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary has issued implementation guidance".

Since 2013, the species has been prevalent in California's Central Valley, and has become a problem particularly in Fresno County. And they don't bite just because they're hungry, but because the blood is needed to successfully grow and hatch eggs.

Roger Kaikko, 61, a Trump voter near Cleveland, Ohio, who took the poll, said he disagrees with the president.

"So, to the transgender individuals now serving in the armed forces: thank you".

Gorka later doubled down on Twitter, writing on the social media platform that the Trump administration will "refuse to treat the American military as an ideological petri dish". With a tweet, the President has cast their status into doubt. The Department of Defense website still has a page showing its "Transgender Policy" which has been in place since June 30 of a year ago. Researchers found, despite the high number of transgender service members, "only a subset will seek gender transition-related treatment", and such costs remain relatively low. Please call and encourage our senators and representatives to oppose this change and allow transgender soldiers to serve openly and with dignity. Would the discharges be honorable or dishonorable? As a result, they wouldn't be able to access any veterans' benefits, including the VA health-care system or education credits. Representative Vicky Hartzler echoed the President's cost concerns and agreed that this is a matter of readiness to serve and costly transgender medical care would have negative consequences on our national security. But the rationale for that deference would be sharply undercut in this case.

In a series of tweets sent out on Wednesday, the controversial politician argued: "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". Judgments based on stereotypical views of masculinity and femininity are often faulty. "Although Trump's tweet stated that he had consulted with "[his] Generals and military experts", reporting indicates that the president did not consult with Mattis, who was only informed of his decision after the announcement. And with the help of the courts, that is unlikely to change, even if the President strong-arms the Department of Defense into turning back the clock to reinstate its prior ban.
