Trump’s AMERICA: As Of Today Transgender Soldiers Are Banned From The Military

President Donald Trump finally got to implement a ban on transgender people in the military on Friday — nearly two years after he shot off tweets declaring the military “will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity,” reports BuzzFeed News.

Lt. Col. Carla M. Gleason, a Pentagon spokesperson, told BuzzFeed News, “We are pleased that we are able to create and implement our own accessions policy,” adding that she is “not aware of any anecdotes up to this point” of military applicants or soldiers being penalized under the new rules.

Trump had campaigned with the promise of being a champion for LGBT people, yet once in office, he carried out the agenda of the Evangelical Christian right with a rapid fire assault on LGBT protections across several federal agencies, reports BuzzFeed News.
