President Trump Announces Total Ban On Transgender Individuals Serving In Military

I’m actually shocked by this, but in a good way. President Trump tweeted this morning that a total ban on transgenders in the military is now in full effect. This totally reverses the Obama administration’s stance that not only let them be open in the military, but mandated we pay for their costly surgeries as well. It also stops women from being subjected to men in their showers, bathrooms and sleeping quarters. I can feel military personnel cheering this all over the place. It’s about freaking time.

President Trump cited the need to focus on victory and that is absolutely correct. Having any type of immoral perversion in the ranks of our military weakens it and prevents us from fighting the enemy with everything we have. He also said that the military could not deal with the higher medical costs and the “disruption” that transgender troops cause within the ranks. All of this is true and it is the first bit of sanity over this whole mess we have seen in years.

“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “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.”

This follows Defense Secretary Mad Dog Mattis delaying the implementation of the plan to accommodate transgender troops in the military for six months. That decision came one day before the deadline for the military to update its medical standards to accommodate transgender service members. Let me tell you something, if this had stood as a mandate, the military would have either had to let transgender men qualify by women’s standards for the military, or they would have had to lower all physical requirements. Neither of those options is acceptable and it’s just insane.

“Since becoming the Secretary of Defense, I have emphasized that the Department of Defense must measure each policy decision against one critical standard: will the decision affect the readiness and lethality of the force?” Mattis stated last month in a release. “Put another way, how will the decision affect the ability of America’s military to defend the nation? It is against this standard that I provide the following guidance on the way forward in accessing transgender individuals into the military Services.”

Former Defense Secretary Ash Carter was allowing the military one year to figure out how to implement the policy. In the meantime, troops were required to take ‘diversity’ training in order to be forced to accept this outcome. We saw cadets in high heels and non-gender restrooms come about. Now, this whole social experiment has been stopped in its tracks. Transgender and gay activists are sure to be incensed by this decision. But it was the right thing to do. Good for President Trump, I applaud him for this decision.
