Trump Tweets Ban on Trans genders In the Military

Donald Trump announced via twitter that the military would not allow trans genders to serve in the military due to medical costs and the disruptions they would cause.

Trump tweeted “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.”

In 2016 then president Barack Obama announced that transgender individuals would be allowed to serve. Several senior officials within the military had voiced opposition to allowing transgender people to serve.
