Trump announces ban on transgender people in U.S. military

Trump announces ban on transgender people in U.S. military | 26 July 2017 | President Trump said he will ban transgender people from serving in the military in any capacity, a reversal of the Obama administration decision that would have allowed them to serve, he announced on social media on Wednesday. Citing the need to focus on victory, Trump said that the military cannot accept the burden of higher medical costs and "disruption" that transgender troops would require. "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 wrote on Twitter. "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."
