President Donald Trump once again has shown his disdain for political correctness by banning transgenders in the military. It isn’t difficult to understand why.
Under Obama, the military would pay for sex change operations and that money would come from the defense spending and would also make each transgender unable to spend their entire enlistment time training for war, which is priority number one. Also, imagine the nightmare it would cause when the ACLU sued the Pentagon over gender specific pronouns or any other such nonsense.
In a tweet series posted Wednesday morning, Trump stated that after serious consultation with military experts, the U.S. cannot allow transgenders to serve in the armed forces because of medical costs and disruption posted by integrating these individuals.
“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow……,” Trump wrote in a tweet. “….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 in the military would entail. Thank you,” Trump added.
The decision in effect reverses a decision by the Obama administration last year to allow transgenders to serve openly in the military and follows a move by the military to delay integration of new transgender recruits by six months.
During his campaign, Trump emphasized that he would consult with generals to handle the problems of political correctness infesting the military.
