McCain should know best Trump is right on transgender issue

McCain should know best Trump is right on transgender issue”

Facing that truth, President Barack Obama ordered that service members could no longer be discharged or otherwise separated from the military exclusively for being transgender. However, Transgender people have been able to serve openly in the military since June 2016, when then-Defense Secretary Ash Carter ended a ban of Transgender serving openly in the Armed Forces.

And yet this week Trump blasted out a series of early morning tweets announcing that transgender people will be banned from military service.

Trump had declared in his tweet on Wednesday, that he made the decision "after consultation" with his "generals and military experts".

"Please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military", the commander in chief tweeted. Mr. Trump made it clear that the military can not bear high medical costs and disruption of transgender service members.

HSBC announces $2bn share buyback scheme as profits climb 5%
New capital regulations have also depressed shareholder payouts as banks stockpile cash to swell their loss-absorbing buffers. HSBC said it has spent about US$500m so far on that restructuring, including US$176m in the first half of this year.

Civil rights and transgender advocacy groups rebelled against this policy and threatened to challenge it in the court. He said nothing would change until the president's direction had been received and developed by Mattis into written "implementation guidance". More people there thought including trans service members would make the military less capable (22 percent) than more capable (14 people), but a plurality of 43 percent thought they'd have no impact by and large.

In light of those conclusions, a sudden reversal of policy based on the President's tweets would likely elicit careful judicial review.

Protesters listen to speakers at a demonstration against a proposed ban of transgendered people in the military in the Castro District, Wednesday, July 26, 2017, in San Francisco.

"The idea that the American people need to be paying for these types of operations to change your sex is not very wise from a standpoint of economics", said Perry, a former Air Force vet and avowed anti-LGBT far right wing Christian.

Geoffrey Kondogbia scores outrageous own goal against Chelsea, fans can't believe it
Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has dismissed rumours linking Italy winger Antonio Candreva with a move to Chelsea . In the 53rd minute, Inter went 2-0 up thanks to Manchester United target Perisic's smart angled-finish.

Similarly, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have continued to speak out since President Trump announced this sweeping ban. "We want people who are transgender to live happy lives".

President Donald Trump has reversed yet another policy decision of the Obama administration.

Several news outlets have reported that the ban came in response to a Capitol Hill dispute over whether taxpayer money should be used to pay for gender transition and hormone therapy for transgender service members. "We're doing great things in the military". "It would harm our readiness by denying the military of these service members' capabilities and requiring the military to replace them at a time when the recruiting pool for the services continues to shrink".

While this is not chump change, to keep things in perspective, the US military annually spends in excess of $84 million on drugs such as Viagra to remedy erectile dysfunction.
