A new transgender military policy from the White House will be issued to the Defense Department soon as first reported by the Wall Street Journal. We first heard about the possible policy through a Twitter storm from President Trump.
The policy is said to go into effect within 6 months. Here are the key points with the policy:
- Bar the Pentagon from recruiting transgender troops
- Cut off payments for medical treatment fro transgender military members
This ban will reverse the policy that President Obama had previously issued. Legislation from senators is already in the works to fight back.
