President Trump Announces Ban on Transgender People Serving in the Military

Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump announced in a tweet that transgender people will not be allowed to serve in “any capacity” in the United States military.

President Trump announced the new policy in tweets after what he called “consultation with my generals and military experts.

The president said that our military “cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail."

This comes after military chiefs announced they would seek a six-month delay before letting transgender people enlist in their service.
