July 26, 2017 – Donald Trump Bans Transgenders From Serving In US Military Over Huge Medical Costs & Disruption Of Service

Transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve in the U.S. military “in any capacity,” President Donald Trump said on Wednesday on Twitter.

The decision would reverse a policy announced in 2016 under former president Barack Obama.

“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,” Trump wrote in a series of tweets.

“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

Then-defence secretary Ash Carter said in June 2016 that transgender individuals could serve openly and would no longer be discharged or separated from the military solely for that reason.

The all-volunteer U.S. military needed to be able to recruit the best people available without “barriers unrelated to a person’s qualification,” Carter said at the time.

    Well, thanks Mr. President. This is one of the things I like him for, though I voted for she snake. That Obama or Obawere guy gave these demons power, now the real man will finish them off bunch of Oloriburukus and scums.

      @IRON BAR, SO TAKING PEOPLE’S RIGHTS AWAY AS LONG AS IT FALLS INTO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS OR YOU DISAGREE WITH THERE LIFE STYLE IS OKAY WITH YOU??? MAYBE WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO CALL BLACK PEOPLE THE N WORD OR WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO DENY WOMEN THE RIGHT TO VOTE, IT ALL SEEMS POLITICAL CORRECT TO ME…SMH. WHAT DOES SERVING IN THE MILITARY AS GOT TO DO WITH SOMEONE BEEN A TRANGENDER? OR YOU ARE JUST AFRAID OF YOUR OWN SHADOW… YOU MUST NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT RIGHT AND FREEDOM MEANS. I LIVED ALL OVER THE WORLD FOR MANY YEARS INCLUDING THE USA. I ALSO SERVED IN THE UNITED STATES MILITARY… IF YOU PASS THE EXAMS AND MEET ALL THE NECESSARY REQUIMENTS, EXCLUDING GENDER,RACE,RELIGION,POLITICAL AFFILIATION. YOU SHOULD BE ALLOW TO SERVE, BECAUSE IT’S YOUR RIGHT AND HONOR AS AN AMERICAN AND NOBODY SHOULD TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU.

    Go on Mr. President,until all the “gays” as in transgender admits they are sick and need help,it’s better they keep on practicing that in their home and stop infesting others.
    Their admission,together with their promoters of being sick or birth disorder will help to establish correctional center before this their RIGHT claim,after all, criminals also do have right.

    Trump gave a reason for his decision. He said it’s because of their huge MEDICAL COST. Ola I understand what you’re saying but while we try to incorporate them fully into the society, we must be careful not to call evil good. This whole gay/transgender issue is becoming like a trend. Many people just wake up one morning and decide to trans bcos they want to grant interviews and lie about how they haven’t been comfortable in their male body and all that. It has become a means of winning cheap popularity in The USA. Secondly, transgender and being black or female are not the same. While one is artificial, the others are natural.

      WELL, @ JULIET, YOU CAN BELIEVE A POLITICIAN IF YOU WANT TO. CHECK THIS OUT, IT COST ABOUT $8 MILLION A YEAR TO DEAL WITH TRANSGENDER MEDICAL ISSUES IN THE MILITARY WHILE IT COST ABOUT $60 MILLION A YEAR FOR THE PRESIDENT TO TRAVEL UNNECESSARY BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN DC AND FLORIDA. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?

    OLA why are u bothered about what does not concern you.this step he has taken will help curb evil practices or is there something else we dont know.We should learn not to support such act because God that created them knew why he created them that way, just because of some selfish reasons they decide to deviate.If he doesnt take such decision that means one morning we can wake up and see that everyone is now a transgender.
