Trump may bar transgenders from the military

Quote:


President Trump touched off a firestorm Wednesday after tweeting that he wants to ban transgender people from serving in the U.S. military in any capacity -- citing advice from his "generals" and medical costs.

In a series of tweets, he wrote:*

"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."

Why shouldn't the coward that avoided the Viet Nam draft five times be the one to decide who is fit to serve ? #Right wing cowards

I don't think there's any "may" about at this point. I think it's a done deal.

It's just another of his campaign promises that he is backpedaling: "I will protect the rights of all our GLBT citizens - every one of them!"

He's such a lying sack of shit.
Thanks from Scrollforward, Camelot and Clara007

I'm not sure but I assume that a tweet is enough to make even a much smaller move.

Im going to guess that this is a negotion technique. At least I hope so.

What the slimy Obama did was to encourage these sick people to join the military, and then have the military pay for their 'transition'. Of course there is no real transition, just sick people being lied to by demented doctors.

Why would they want to be in the military other than getting "free" medical "changes" or whatever else they think they want?

A person joins the military as a "male", say he decides he is going through or wants to "change". What unit should he be assigned to, what barracks should he be in, what duties can he be depended on to do, the same as others etc. What "special" considerations would he/she demand or some LBGT group demand for the person? Why should this individual get "special" considerations, all his particular group do not?

It's our military folks...they have enough on their plate without adding another problem.

Medication should be covered the same as any other illness that is covered in the military.

I agree, surgery should be paid by the individual.

That's all well and good - except the people IN the military - the ones who it actually AFFECTS - say it doesn't change anything whatsoever and that everybody who is transgendered does all the requirements and fulfills the jobs that everybody else does.
