In an unexpected executive decision that President Donald Trump made overnight, every single transgender soldier serving in America’s military right now is waking up to some bad news this morning. There’s a new Commander-in-Chief in office who is more concerned about the strength of our military than he is about the sensitivities of others.
After Barack Obama showed a complete disregard for everything the military stands for by compromising the quality and making equality for gender-confused individuals a priority, Trump is making the armed services great again. Gone are the days of stripping the military down to nothing by putting men dressed as females on the front line and making soldiers get parts needed for machinery from junk yards. We now have a president who respects the service and these heroes and just dropped a big surprise on transgenders with where he’s sending them.
The Daily Caller reports:
“President Donald Trump has made the executive decision to ban transgenders from serving in the military, reversing a major decision by the Obama administration.”
“In a tweet series posted Wednesday morning, Trump stated that after serious consultation with military experts, the U.S. cannot allow transgenders to serve in the armed forces because of medical costs and disruption posted by integrating these individuals.”
“’After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow……’,” Trump wrote in a tweet. ‘….Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. 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. Thank you’, Trump added.”
Trump’s decision to reverse Obama’s legacy in this way is sure to infuriate his predecessor who prided himself on this disrespectful move. Obama was in no way capable of making decisions for the military since every move he made on behalf of the service seemed to be in spite of the duty they have to our country. Trump is absolutely right that there is a lot more to making exceptions for certain people and to serve than just equality. The cost to Americans being the biggest, but also compromising the integrity of one of the most respected militaries in the world which Obama made look like a joke.
“The missive comes after Trump’s defense secretary, retired Gen. Jim Mattis, delayed the implementation of the plan to accept transgender troops by six months,” Washington Post reports. “The decision came one day before the deadline for the military to update its medical standards to accommodate transgender service members.”
“During his campaign, Trump emphasized that he would consult with generals to handle the problems of political correctness infesting the military,” the Daily Caller added.
It’s ironic that just as traitor transgender soldier Bradley Manning has been set free from prison for his crimes against America, as a gift from Obama on his way out of the White House, Trump is stopping this transgender madness in the military. Having General “Mad Dog” Mattis running the military has also been a huge factor in this important reversal since his main focus has been on the “lethality” of the force.
“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 announced last month. “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.”
“Thousands of troops currently serving in the military are transgender, and some estimates place the number as high as 11,000 in the reserves and active duty military, according to a RAND Corporation study that has been cited by the Defense Department,” according to the Washington Post.
The written rioting is already surfacing online after Trump’s assertive decision on this matter. Liberals are bringing up the tired claim that a “draft dodger” like Trump isn’t qualified to make military decisions. Not only did he not dodge the draft, as they continually like to say, but General Mattis fully supports this move and knows a thing or two about the military, while the left stays focused on sensitivities.
