President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that transgenders would not be allowed to serve in America’s military forces.
He made the announcement on Twitter.
….Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming…..
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 26, 2017
And he went on in a separate tweet: “…victor and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that trangender in the military would entail. Thank you.”
Earlier this year, Trump had been fielding guidance from his top military officials about the notion of training transgender troops. Defense Secretary James Mattis, nonetheless, allowed them to serve.
Trump’s tweets are quite a different message from the one handed down by Mattis.
Breitbart has more:
The decision also comes after Mattis issued multiple memos indicating that decisions should be based on whether it makes the military more lethal. One memo put an end to all training that was not related to military readiness and blasted Pentagon officials for wasting as much as $28 million on Afghan camouflage uniforms that don’t actually blend in with Afghan terrain.
