Donald Trump says transgender people cannot serve in the military

Donald Trump has revealed that transgender people cannot serve in any capacity in the United States military.

He revealed this in a series of tweets moments ago.

 

 

 

Donald Trump tweeted last year that he will support the LGBT community.

The Obama administration had allowed for transgenders to serve in the military but a lot of Republicans were against the move. The Independent Rand Corporation estimated in 2016 that 2,450 of the 1.2 million active-duty service members are transgender.

Many have gone on Twitter to voice their concerns.

 

In 2016, reports surfaced that the Pentagon planned to repeal its ban on transgender members but military leaders submitted a request asking that it be delayed for six months.
