Trump officially bans transgender people from military
« on: August 25, 2017, 03:57:13 PM »
Finally, common sense takes the wheel.

President Trump signed a presidential memo Friday instructing the Defense Department to stop accepting transgender people who want to enroll in the military.

The memo details Trump's previous Twitter announcement last month that he would reimplement a ban on transgender people serving in the U.S. military, and officially requests the Pentagon begin to implement the ban.

Trump’s memo bars transgender people from enlisting, but instructs Secretary of Defense James Mattis to further explore how to handle transgender people currently serving in the armed forces.

The memo also orders the Pentagon to stop paying for gender reassignment surgeries, except in cases that are already in progress.
It also requests that the Pentagon develop an implementation plan for the ban by March 23, 2018.

I'll be honest, this is something I didn't expect to see Trump tackle. At all. :thumbup:

I don't know though, sending a few thousand Chelsea Manning's dressed in evening wear into battle would certainly confuse the enemy.

... really, it's part of the Trump agenda to reduce the size and cost of Government.

Call it the "Bullets for Bras" program.   :thumbup:

We can call that unit "Fighting from behind".
People sleep peacefully at night because there are a few tough men prepared to do violence on their behalf.

Once again this is how Trump strikes back at the left. They call him a racist, blame Charlottesville on him,  scream bloody murder and say he is deranged in the LSM. Okay, NO MORE TRANNY's in the barracks! BAM How you like them apples?  Trump should be impeached....oh yeah?  POW...Sheriff Joe.... PARDONED! Leftist heads are spinning like exorcist victims spewing green bile.

Excellent points!!!   Sometimes the people who are most effective at attacking the other side, came from that side.  They were unable to reconcile it's failures & switched positions.
