Trump Administration Insults All Working People with LGBTQ Actions

Trump Administration Insults All Working People with LGBTQ Actions”

"There is no reason to force service members who are able to fight, train and deploy to leave the military - regardless of their gender identity".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said guidance on how to "fully implement this policy" is still to be worked out.

Evangelical Christian leaders who informally advise President Donald Trump briefly discussed the issue of banning transgender individuals from serving in the military during a meeting at the White House earlier this month. There are around 15000 active transgender members serving now.

Amidst widespread speculation about the President's motivations for such an abrupt shift, those most shaken by the announcement were transgender service members themselves, whose futures are now at risk. The report states that Mattis initially resisted the policy allowing transgender Americans to serve in the armed forces, but accepted that the policy was to remain in place.

Trump promised jobs, and he promised to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people; instead, he's selling us out for votes. They are already present in the major service branches and reserves. Based on that extensive investigation, the Department of Defense concluded that permitting transgender soldiers to serve would not be disruptive or costly and would enhance military readiness.

1 ton of plastic produced for every person on planet, scientists reveal
But due to their longer useful lifetimes, only 12 million metric tons, or 5 percent, of waste was created by construction. Global production of plastic has grown rapidly in recent decades, surpassing many other man-made materials.

At the top end of estimates, according to a study from the RAND corporation, the military would spend $8.4 million annually for transition related medical care for its transgender service members.

President Donald Trump made a surprise announcement about his plans to ban transgender people in the USA military, sparking outrage and condemnation from the LGBT community and civil rights groups.

Trump's announcement was reportedly a response to ongoing feuding over funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, among other campaign promises. On July 26, 1948, President Harry Truman signed an executive order to racially integrate the military. Defense officials struggled to explain what they called Trump's "guidance" and say it won't be followed until Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is actually directed to stop allowing transgender Americans into the service.

Democrats mostly supported military service by transgender Americans while Republicans were divided on the issue. Nearly half - 47 percent - believed the policy change would have little effect on their own unit's military readiness. "This was about resources within the military, and nothing more". The Lambda Democratic Club board voted unanimously to take immediate action with its membership throughout Contra Costa County to combat this reversal in policy and to advocate within the Democratic Party of Contra Costa County and the California Democratic Party, including the Veterans Caucus and the LGBT Caucus. "It would harm our readiness by denying the military of these service members' capabilities and requiring the military to replace them at a time when the recruiting pool for the services continues to shrink".
