Pentagon Defies Commander in Chief Trump – Will Allow Transgenders into Military in January
Let’s face it.
We live in a lawless country.
Obama caused much more ruin than any of us realized.
The Pentagon announced today they will defy their Commander in Chief and allow transgenders into the military.
The AP reported:
The Pentagon is allowing transgender people to enlist in the military beginning Jan. 1, despite President Donald Trump’s opposition.
The new policy reflects growing legal pressure on the issue, and the difficult hurdles the federal government would have to cross to enforce Trump’s demand to ban transgender individuals from the military. Two federal courts already have ruled against the ban. Potential transgender recruits will have to overcome a lengthy and strict set of physical, medical and mental conditions that make it possible, though difficult, for them to join the armed services.
Maj. David Eastburn, a Pentagon spokesman, says the enlistment of transgender recruits will start Jan. 1 and go on amid the legal battles. The Defense Department also is studying the issue.
So does that make US taxpayers responsible for the costly transition process?
UPDATE: Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Monday the DOJ and Defense Department were working on a solution.
