Trump Bans Transgender People From Serving in US Army

Trump Bans Transgender People From Serving in US Army

“The United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” he announced today in three tweets, Joinfo.com reports with reference to News Monkey.

Of course, the decision is getting a lot of criticism.

“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,” President Trump wrote in his tweets, concluding the statement with a dry “Thank you”.

 

By the end of February, he had already agreed on a measure that weakened the protection of transgenders in public schools.

In July last year, he had written on Twitter that he was the best presidential candidate for the LGBT community, unlike Hillary Clinton.
