On Twitter, Trump Talks New U.S. Military Ban on Transgender Service | The Drive

President Donald Trump has appeared to suggest he will ban transgender individuals from openly serving in the U.S. military. The announcement comes amid a Pentagon review and ongoing Congressional and public debates surrounding the issue.

On July 26, 2017, Trump took to Twitter to say he would not “accept or allow” transgender persons “in any capacity” in the American armed forces. He specifically cited high medical costs and unspecified “disruption” as the key factors in his decision, which he said came after discussing the issue with unnamed “Generals and military experts.”
