Hatred for LGBTQ? Trump calls transgender ban 'great favour' to USA military

"I've had great support from that community", Trump said. "It's been a very hard situation and I think I'm doing a lot of people a favour by coming out and just saying it".

Trump's snap decision, a Politico report suggested, might have been a ploy to appease House conservatives so they would pass a spending bill that included money to build Trump's border wall - a wall he initially said Mexico would pay for.

Last month, after consulting with his generals and "military experts", Trump announced that transgender people will be banned from service. "I think I have great support, or I had great support from that community, right?"

Spencer, who was confirmed by the Senate and sworn-in from the Pentagon in early August, told reporters Thursday that "any patriot" willing to serve his or her country - regardless of sexual orientation - should be free to do so, The Associated Press reported. Got a lot of votes.

On July 27, retired flag-rank military officers, including FRC Executive Vice President Jerry Boykin, wrote a letter to Trump to express their gratitude for his tweets and reiterated how a policy that not only allows transgender individuals to openly serve but also would pay for their gender transitions could hurt military readiness and military pocketbooks.

General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the U.S. military, has said there will be "no modification" to the military's transgender policy until the White House issues a directive through formal channels.

Thousands of trans people are already serving - many of them openly - in the United States armed forces and the Department of Defense has found no evidence that they undermine unit cohesion. As you know, it's been a very complicated issued for the military.

The former businessman was sworn in August 3, a little more than a week after Trump declared the ban via Twitter.

His announcement was followed by a lawsuit from two gay rights groups to halt the proposed ban.

Former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter allowed for a year-long review process to give the Pentagon time to assess how it would accept new transgender recruits into the military, and current Defense Secretary James Mattis announced in June that he was delaying the implementation of the new policy, saying he needed more time to review it.
