In a time where the military needs as many men & women as possible President Trump’s latest tweets don’t help. Trump says via twitter that after consultations with his generals that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgenders to serve.
“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow…Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,”
“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming…victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you”
Back during the 2016 campaign Trump tweeted that he would fight for the LGBT community. Has is banning trans men & women from serving in the military helping the LGBT community?
It is not clear how this will affect the trans men & men service members yet but only time will tell.
Are you surprised?
