Trump moves to finalize transgender military ban

On Friday, President Donald Trump ordered that the US military officially follow through with his previously proposed ban on transgender individuals serving in the armed forces.

A White House official briefed the media on Friday, explaining that Trump was giving the secretaries of defense and homeland security autonomous discretion to determine what will happen to transgender troops who are currently serving in the military.

The transgender ban has sparked widespread public outrage, and a lawsuit is already underway. This kind of opposition could delay the Pentagon from fully implementing the new policy.

Historically, there has never been an effort to remove a group of people from the US military who have already been serving. Thus begins an unprecedented situation in the military.

  1. I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours lately, but I never
    found any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for
    me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
