United States military will not 'accept or allow' transgender people to serve

Sky News reports that the "Pentagon has referred all questions on Donald Trump's announcement of ban on transgender people serving in US military to the White House".

The president claimed his decision to ban trans people from military service was linked to "tremendous medical costs and disruption."

This is a reversal of policy changes initiated under President Barack Obama, whose administration had set July 1 of 2017 as the deadline for beginning to enlist openly transgender troops. Transgender service members have risked their lives around the world, and the previous transgender military ban made them unable to be their authentic selves or seek the medical care they needed.

The former policy was still up on the Department of Defense website Wednesday morning.

A study conducted by the RAND National Defense Research Institute estimated that gender transition-related healthcare for the active component of the military would increase overall active-component healthcare costs between.04 and.13 percent.

"Let us be clear". As a result, DOJ would no longer enforce civil rights laws on behalf of LGBTQ people, a move that could have unsafe influence on federal court cases across the country.

The Pentagon ended its ban on openly transgender people serving in the US military in 2016 under Democratic President Barack Obama's administration. "This short-sighted and discriminatory policy will make America less safe", said Kildee.

The Human Rights Campaign immediately tweeted its disapproval of Trump's announcement. "Thank you." The issue of transgender rights in America has been increasingly in the spotlight in recent months, especially over how states regulate the use of public restrooms.

"I will tell you who the better friend is and some day I believe that will be proven out big league", Trump said.
