Transgender people won't be allowed to serve in US military

President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced a ban on transgendered people from serving in the USA military.

The president wrote on Twitter that such service would cause "disruption" and burden the US with "tremendous medical costs".

"The arguments being made against transgender servicemembers are the exact same as those faced by women, African-Americans and any other minority groups before they were able to serve in our military", Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan tweeted just after the announcement, calling Trump's decision "a disgrace & an insult to countless fearless transgender servicemembers".

After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow.

The 45th President of the United States composed a three part tweet that says transgender people won't be allowed to serve in the US military.

The Pentagon has refused to release any data on the number of transgender troops now serving. It's unclear how Trump's new decree will effect those now serving.

A Rand Corp. study found that there are between 2,500 and 7,000 transgender service members in the active-duty military, and another 1,500 to 4,000 in the reserves.

Last month, the Army had begun compulsory transgender sensitivity training for soldiers and civilian employees. Military chiefs recently announced a delay on allowing transgender people from enlisting.

Some members of Congress have also tried to limit spending on transgender troops in this year's legislation authorizing military spending.
