• News Alert: Trump to reinstate military transgender ban

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Wed Jul 26 07:34:04 2017
    President Donald Trump announced that he plans to reinstate a ban on transgender individuals serving in the US armed forces.[1]

    The decision reversed a policy initially approved by the Defense Department under President Barack Obama that would allow transgender individuals to openly serve in the military. Defense Secretary James Mattis announced last month that he was delaying enactment of the plan to begin allowing transgender individuals to join the US military.

    "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," Trump said in a series of tweets. "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."
