Trump To Reinstate US Military Ban On Transgender People

Just when you thought we’d have a Trump drama free week… he goes and does THIS.

President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he plans to reinstate a ban on transgender individuals from serving “in any capacity” in the US armed forces.

In a series of tweets (yes, you read that right – “tweets”), he informed the world:

Thank you? Ugh. This is not a high school speech…

According to White House Press secretary Sarah Huckabee, the White House and the Defense Department would work together "as implementation takes place and is done so lawfully."

This ban reverses the decision that Ash Carter, the Defence secretary under Obama, made in 2016 allowing transgender people to serve.

Looks like Trump needs to hold a covfefe to explain himself.
