BREAKING: Trump Bans Transgender People from the Military

BREAKING: Trump Bans Transgender People from the Military

Just when we all needed some good news… this is fantastic. President Trump has now officially announced a complete ban on transgenders in the military. They will no longer accept them in their ranks. There’s no word yet what will happen to those already in the military. Obama started this disastrous and insane social experiment under his watch. You had diversity training for the troops and politically correct speech enforced. Women in the military were put in danger and degraded by being forced to shower with transgenders and accept them in the bathroom and birthing. I’m sure the vast majority of the military is thrilled today and thanking both President Trump and the Pentagon for doing this.

Trump tweeted out first thing this morning: “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 US Military.” This move comes a year after Ash Carter instituted mandates for transgenders in the military under Barack Obama. It was meant to demoralize, humiliate and cripple our military. What do you expect from an enemy within? They were also debating physical standards for transgenders… do you make them qualify as women, or lower all standards for the military? Thank heavens that won’t be done now… it would have been a catastrophe.

From Fox News:

President Trump tweeted Wednesday that the U.S. government will not allow transgender people “to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military.”

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.”

The president’s tweets came only a few weeks after Defense Secretary James Mattis said he would give military chiefs another six months to conduct a review to determine if allowing transgender individuals to enlist in the armed services will affect the “readiness or lethality” of the force. The deadline for that review was Dec. 1, 2017.

Trump correctly pointed out that the military needs to focus on victory, not social preferences and political correctness. He’s also correct when he says that the military can’t accept the crushing burden of higher medical costs and the “disruption” that transgender troops bring to our ranks. This whole piece of insanity should never have been done in the first place. Trump made a very good call today on this and I commend him for it.

Trump’s decision comes just a few weeks after Defense Secretary James Mattis said he was going to allow military leaders another six months to conduct a review to determine if allowing transgender individuals to enlist in the armed services will affect the “readiness or lethality” of the force. The deadline for the review was not until December 1st… it would seem they decided to speed it up. At the time, Mattis said: “Since becoming the Secretary of Defense, I have emphasized that the Department of Defense must measure each policy decision against one critical standard: will the decision affect the readiness and lethality of the force?” Mattis stated in a memo. “Put another way, how will the decision affect the ability of America’s military to defend the nation? It is against this standard that I provide the following guidance on the way forward in accessing transgender individuals into the military Services.”

Immediately after the announcement, gay and transgender activists melted down Twitter over it. The Civil Liberties Union came unglued as well. But for most Americans, this came as very good news and I would bet everything the military is thrilled with this. This was a great move by the President and one the military will celebrate.
