Trans policy unchanged for now

28 Juillet 2017

But there was stronger support for transgender service members than Trump might have expected even among fellow Republicans.

What now?: Trump apparently tweeted his announcement with little or no coordination with the Pentagon.

"In the meantime, we will continue to treat all of our personnel with respect". We really wish she would wake up and talk to her father about what he is doing to the community she so lovingly supports. And while they and other senators were seeking answers Wednesday, the White House was providing basically none.

Despite facing brain cancer treatment, Republican Sen. John McCain, Ariz., Joni Ernst, Iowa, and Orrin Hatch, Utah, on Wednesday criticized the president's decision.

"We should all be guided by the principle that any American who wants to serve our country and is able to meet the standards should have the opportunity to do so-and should be treated as the patriots they are". Britain is among them, as is the close United States ally Israel.

For starters, Defense Secretary James Mattis isn't even around.

"The Pentagon isn't defying orders", Hasson said, "They're waiting for them".

"We will work through the implementation guidance when we get it and then we'll move from there", he added while speaking at the National Press Club.

But while Trump's tweet states that he consulted with his generals and military experts ahead of making the announcement, U.S. defense officials have indicated that numerous top brass were caught off guard by the policy change.

The All I See Is You star took to Instagram on Thursday to share her views on Trump's controversial decision, which he announced via Twitter on Tuesday. The order nearly certainly will lead to a ban on future transgender recruits and service academy applicants.

Daily active users (DAUs ) - DAUs were 1.32 billion on average for June 2017, an increase of 17% year-over-year. The company's CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that "We had a good second quarter and first half of the year".

However, supporters said the cost of transgender surgeries should not be funded by the military. And the president is publicly quarreling with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, his most loyal Cabinet member.

If enacted it could force thousands of openly transgender troops out of the armed services, in line with the policy that existed before previous year.

That policy, announced during the past year of President Barack Obama's second term, was scheduled to go into effect earlier this month, but Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced a six-month delay in its implementation to review whether it was in fact prudent given the nature of the military and its mission. That review was due December 1.

"Our troops shouldn't be forced to endure hours of transgender sensitivity classes and politically correct distractions like this one", said Tony Perkins, a former Marine who heads the conservative Family Research Council. They did not seek a blanket ban on transgender service members.

The Times cited a source who said Trump was anxious the amendment could delay the spending bill.

Trump also said lifting the ban would cause "disruption" within the armed forces, and his press secretary, Sarah Huckabee, said it could "erode military readiness and unit cohesion".

Adding to the confusion is that Trump's decision came without a plan in place to implement it.

Trump's intervention potentially sends the Pentagon back to the drawing board on an issue that had already required years of review and discussion.

This is particularly the case as growing foreign threats are stretching our military's resources, and as we struggle as a nation to provide basic health care to all.
