BREAKING: Trump states that transgenders will no longer serve in the military
On July 26, 2017, Trump announced that transgenders will no longer serve in the military.
Trump’s actions effectively reversed the policy implemented on October 1st, 2016 under the Obama Administration that allowed transgenders to work in the military and allowing them to undergo sex changes. Trump’s Department of Defense also prevented Obama’s part two policy from being implemented on July 1st, 2017.
While Trump stated that the decision to reverse the “pro-transgender” policy was based on cutting back medical costs and to enhance the military in other capacities, he has suffered from increased public backlash. Many on Twitter and social media have denounced his decision as “homophobic” and continue to demand his impeachment.
