President Trump dropped a bombshell Friday night, when he issued an order banning transgender troops from serving in the military, except in limited circumstances.
“Among other things, the policies set forth by the Secretary of Defense state that transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — individuals who the policies state may require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery — are disqualified from military service except under certain limited circumstances,” the memo issued by the White House stated.
Democrat lawmakers and liberal activists have already responded in outrage over the decision, calling it a “hateful ban,” intended to “drive a wedge in our society,” “based on bigotry,” and accusing Trump of fighting a “culture war.”
