Donald Trump Says that Transgender Individuals Will Be Banned from Military

Donald Trump announced via Twitter on Wednesday that the United States military, in a reversal of an Obama-era policy, will no longer “accept or allow” transgender individuals.

“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 [sic] in the military would entail. Thank you,” he wrote in a series of three tweets.
