Trump possibly thinking the T in LGBT stands for “Trump” as he waves the Pride Flag

Candidate Trump claimed that he would be a steadfast ally to the LGBTQ community. Perhaps he's forgotten that the "T" stands for "transgender". For many, the military offers a way out of poverty and opens opportunities for education, job training, access to healthcare and permanent housing.

That President Trump appeared to circumvent the Joint Chiefs, the Secretary of Defense and the military as a whole will not sit well with McCain or, indeed, many Republicans who hold the military in great esteem.

The Department of Defense continues to await President Donald Trump's official order barring transgender service members from the USA military, Pentagon Spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told reporters Monday.

Trump announced the controversial ban via his personal Twitter account on Wednesday, where he said the military "cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail".

President Donald Trump has reversed yet another policy decision of the Obama administration.

The legal questions raised by President Trump's statements present a key concern for many - especially those now serving in the military.

"But now they are not good enough to be who they are", Borden said.

"VA's policy has not changed. There have been no replacements".

In a Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families poll conducted late past year, 57 percent of active-duty military personnel expressed a negative opinion of the decision to allowing transgender troops to serve openly. No new study has been conducted or published since then, meaning that there's no new data. Suffice it to say Mr. President, that your ban will in NO WAY stop Transgender people from serving in the Armed Forces of our country, which we will continue to love and defend with our lives, because you have no way of knowing who we are, you never have and since YOU will require us to serve "in the closet", so be it.

Is Trump undermining yet another of his Cabinet members? According to reports, the announcement even took the Pentagon by surprise. If you're going to consult your experts, shouldn't the defense secretary be one of the top voices in such an important and far-reaching decision?

Earlier this month, U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler, a Republican from Missouri, offered an amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act that would have cut military funding for transition-related surgeries or hormone therapy treatment. 19% said they were unsure. But 2017 looks to be worse already-and all 15 of the victims have been transgender women of color. There's no there there. We support you and all service members and veterans.

Canada similarly segregated blacks and Asians into labour battalions during the First World War, as the racist attitudes of the day led to the common belief that they made inferior soldiers and would be a disruptive factor if merged with the predominantly Anglo-Saxon combat regiments.

The president's rationales are stale nonsense, repeatedly debunked by studies. Social engine erring in the military is risky and unfair to those putting their lives on the line.

Members of the state's congressional delegation criticized both the message - one called it "dumb" - and the medium, with confusion on exactly what weight the president's words have on Pentagon policy'.
