PRESIDENT TRUMP Bans Transgender People From The Military!

PALM BEACH — In another fine moment for human rights, President Donald Trump has stopped pretending to love the LGBT community and has just tweeted that transgender people are not welcome in the armed forces.

The part-time Palm Beacher had this to say just minutes ago on Twitter: “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. 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. Thank you”

As one might imagine, some veterans organizations are striking back online.

One group, Vets Against Trump, had this to say.

 

Trump’s new position is a 180-degree turnaround from his campaign rhetoric. In June of last year, Trump wrote “Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.”

It’s unclear why the ban is coming out now, but it may have something to do with trying to distract the public from the health care votes that haven’t been going his way.
