President Trump Announces The Military Will No Longer Allow Or Accept Transgender Individuals To Serve

In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, President Trump announced that “The United States Government would not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity of the military.”

Trump stated that “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.”

This announcement comes a month after Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that The Pentagon would delay Obama-era regulations allowing transgender individuals to openly serve in the military for the remainder of 2017 while they review the impact of these shifts.
