President Trump's Policy for Transgender Service Members

In a follow-up statement, the President said he has "great respect for the community" but that he thinks he is doing a "great favour" to the military by attempting to ban trans people from serving openly.

It will be somewhat different from the total ban Trump tweeted out on July 26: Transgender service members who are already on active duty will continue to be able to serve.

"The policy is going to address whether or not transgenders can serve under what conditions, what medical support they require, how much time would they be perhaps non-deployable, leaving others to pick up their share of everything", Secretary Mattis said, according to CNN.

The Palm Center is an independent research institute committed to sponsoring state-of-the-art scholarship to enhance the quality of public dialogue about critical and controversial public policy issues. Even if you take the $8.4 million number as a given, that's about a tenth of what the military spends on erectile dysfunction treatments for troops, about $84 million. It's been a very confusing issue for the military. He is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Like so many White House initiatives before it, the transgender service ban marks a triumph of America's worst over its best.

Weiss called on the President to reverse the "dehumanizing decision" immediately. It caught the defense officials off guard, totally. They're doing the work. But they don't want anymore.

After the White House announced the policy, five transgender military members sued Trump, arguing the policy is unconstitutional discrimination and in violation of their rights to equal protection under the law.


The Pentagon's military service chiefs hold a range of views on social issues, including on open service by gays and women in combat. Studies, including a government-sponsored Rand Corporation study of the USA military, have shown that transgender people can ably serve our country without any medical problems, including in deployable areas.

"This is people's lives we're talking about". And is that a fair question to ask?

As Gizmodo noted previously, the military is usually willing to shell out countless billions of dollars in sketchy contracts, unnecessary new equipment and sheer administrative waste. A plan permitting the military to recruit transgender individuals was placed on hold for six months in June.

'I will not turn my back. "We strongly condemn these actions by the Trump Administration that will put transgender troops in harm's way".

GREENE: That is Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed.

A new study indicates that the cost of discharging and replacing transgender people in the us military will be steep.

Though the memo has not been finalized, a source familiar with the document confirmed that it will likely be handed down within the "coming days". Senator, thanks for the time.
