Trump: The military will no longer allow transgender people to serve ‘in any capacity’

July 26, 2017

Donald TrumpPresident Trump announced Wednesday morning the military will no longer allow transgender individuals to serve in “any capacity” in the military.

“After consultation with my 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. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you,” Trump said in a series of tweets that remained unfinished Wednesday morning.

A Pentagon spokesman said to contact the White House for further information.

“We refer all questions about the President’s statements to the White House,” Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said. “We will continue to work closely with the White House to address the new guidance provided by the Commander-in-Chief on transgender individuals serving the military. We will provide revised guidance to the Department in the near future.”

    When I was in the military, sexual perversion was illegal. Why should we accept it now?

  • NM Leon says:

    Changes in military policy should be based on whether or not the change would increase the lethality of the military…period.

    Social experimentation has no place.

    Good for President Trump.

      I have been enjoying the comments on this subject. They range from how President Obama was a friend to the LGBTQ….. community to how President Trump does not have the right to do this. First off, President Obama is such a “friend” to the “community” that he waited until Oct 2016 to sign the executive order allowing trans folks in the military. They fail to realize he waited until he had less than 3 months in office to make this decision, knowing it was controversial and would meet with resistance. In addition, if President Obama had the “right” to sign the order authorizing the inclusion, President Trump would then have the right to sign one overturning Obama’s. Funny how that works.

      1. NM Leon says:

        Sec Def Ash Carter implemented the change in policy on June 30, 2016, allowing a one year review.

        Obozo no doubt wanted the change in order to pander to a voter demographic in an election year. It had zero to do with increasing the lethality of the military. On the contrary, spending finite resources on trannies for non military related medical expenses reduces overall effectiveness,

        1. Bob says:

          And you can see how well his pandering worked.

          1. NM Leon says:

            Not well enough, thank God.

        2. Harry J Schaubel says:

          Exactly! “Non-Military Related Expenses”! Why should I have to have MY tax dollars paid so Johnny can have an Innie instead of an Outie?

  • Rick D. says:

    That’s a very sensible and common sense solution to the problem. Anyone who has served in the military would agree that to do otherwise creates an environment which is incompatible w/the goals & objectives of armed forces.

  • ClarenceDeBarrows says:

    Definitely the way to go Trump! Don’t let the left wing flack bother you. As they say, “If you’re taking flack you’re right on target.

    When I joined the US NAVY in 1960 they would give an undesirable discharge to anyone caught in a homosexual act immediately it just wasn’t tolerated. I was about the USS Tallahatchie County AVB2 in 1962 when agents from the Office of Naval Intelligence came on board and caught 2 of them doing their thing at night. In 2 separate actions on the my ship. They both got the boot. This is almost like watching some sick Netflix movies. No insult to Netflix of course. I pray for and thank Almighty God everyday for President Donald J Trump.

      When you try to undermine a Nation, you attack it’s Moral’s. You keep harping on it and pushing the agenda that you are wrong to believe as you do. You are forced to tolerate perversion and soon told you have to be “ACCEPTING” of it. If not, then you’re some sicko who doesn’t deserve to live with the Nice people. Nice people meaning those who swear by a string of letters that keep getting longer. Forced to “Accept” what is it…. 87 different Genders, now? A Country without Moral’s is a country in decline and easy to be taken over.

      Everyone is now up in arms saying PRESIDENT Trump is Anti-*long string of letters*. But if they read his order you’ll see he says it is because of the medical costs/issues and down-time. MY objection to them is that they think they should be able to stay in the service and have their mutilations done, at the cost of several hundred thousand US TAXPAYER dollars, and then a 3 month recovery time. Why is it suddenly MY obligation to pay when Johnny decides he needs to butcher his body so he can be Janey??? Let Johnny take leave, go have his mutilations and then when IT is ready to perform IT’s duties, then IT can come back.

      But don’t give me any crap about this being Anti-(string of letters), when the real issue is that think they are ENTITLED to this mutilation and down-time and fully believe that the US TAXPAYER is obligated to pay for it.
      You know. Like how the US TAXPAYER is forced to pay for someone’s abortion because they didn’t use Birth Control because the US TAXPAYER didn’t pay for it. For some reason this is supposed to be an Entitlement. “Pay for my Birth Control or pay for my abortion!” How about paying to have your tubes cut so you can’t burden the US TAXPAYER with more welfare babies and abortions?

  • mike says:

    I think a lot on this subject, being a vet. My conclusion is that a trans. in the military under the Obama and PC rules are not workable.
    For a trans to be accepted into the military they must not receive any special consideration nor expect it. They sign up to serve their country first and foremost. They cannot expect and receive any special consideration while in the armed forces or after discharge. In short they would need to shut-up and due as their told, like the rest of us had to.

    1. Retired says:

      Them days are long gone . Why do you think so many gave up a promotion under Obama and got out instead of extending ????

  • DJTX says:

    If they wanted to be accepted and have fellow soldiers be glad they’re part of the military, they wouldn’t have pushed so hard to be in opposite sex dressing/showering areas, forcing themselves into women’s showering areas. And, by taking advantage of the military health care system and making it seem as if they’re being discriminated against if they aren’t allowed to have gender reassignment surgery, which costs hundreds of thousands of dollars and takes over 3 months to recuperate from, they have made themselves a burden to the military, rather than helping the country. Just being a part of the military and fitting in like everyone else does isn’t enough. They pushed until they had more rights and more expensive care than our veterans, who are waiting months and even dying before receiving minimal care. If you want people to let you live your life as you please without interference, you need to do what everyone else in the entire world must do, be someone others want to be around rather than someone who is disrupting and forcing others to change to be around you. And making such a huge issue about what pronoun people use – really? If that’s the most important thing you have to worry about, what a great life you’ve had so far.

    1. Harry J Schaubel says:

      Exactly how I feel. if you (generic term) want to be the opposite sex, fine. Go mutilate yourself. But I’m not seeing why I should be forced to have MY tax dollars pay for your (again Generic term) surgery. Take a leave of absence. Go spend YOUR money and YOUR time mutilating yourself. Then after you’re all finished, enter the military. But it should NOT be the responsibility of the US Taxpayers to foot the bill and deal with your lost time.
      Question? In the Private Sector, if you went to your Boss and told him you wanted this “Gender Reassignment Surgery” and your Boss HAS to pay for it and compensate you for your recovery time, what do you think would happen? If I was that Boss I’d give you a raise. With my boot. About 12″ high and about 6′ out the door. And the same would happen in EVERY situation. Show me ONE Private Sector Organization ANYWHERE who would not do the same thing? Not even Bill Gates would pay it. And for sure PRESIDENT Trump never would. So why is it they expect the US Government, and thru them the Taxpayers, to pay???

  • Retired says:

    Now if we can only get rid of the Gays , it would improve everything in the military .

    1. greg says:

      Wasn’t that another lib named Clinton. Don’t ask, Don’t tell.

      1. Retired says:

        Yes ,you got it right .

        1. ourzoo10 says:

          Yes, and at the time my son was in the Coast Guard as a radioman…..And He was not happy with that program…at all! Stuck on a 168′ ship in a Tiny room!

          1. Retired says:

            That is what most do not understand , the confined quarters that many in the military live and sleep in .

  • gvette says:

    Great! Obama likes queers, and faggots. Wanted to hurt our military.

    1. ourzoo10 says:

      He just wanted ‘company’….while taking down the morale of this great nation.

      1. gvette says:

        We caught a break. We elected Trump. Had Killary of won, she’d a been Omuslim on steroids!

        1. ourzoo10 says:

          Yes we did..and the more the stupids on the left rant and rave, the more confident I become that we did, indeed, dodge a bullet.

          1. gvette says:

            I give Trump a lot of credit. Him, and his family are getting hammered twenty four seven, and he is still accomplishing things to help our country. Now, If only we could get the useless congress to stop their obstruction.

          2. ourzoo10 says:

            The sad thing is, it isn’t just the dems. causing the problems. I grew up during the “McCarthy” times….folks always wanted to know what was going on in school..I could never understand it…until the Cuban Missile Crisis. That was really frightening to have Russia so close to our land. JFK knew something and was betrayed even before he was shot. I do believe that he was the last of the Honest leaders, until Reagan. I do know that LBJ really started things to go haywire..and our congressmen are so upset because President Trump has begun to reverse all that has been done wrong. I just hope he has plenty of guards…Seems like it is only the Good Presidents that are threatened.

          3. gvette says:

            I agree. It’s the left, right, and center. Those in DC like the sewer they are in. They get rich there. Trump is disrupting that. They are not happy!

          4. ourzoo10 says:

            And they have the lame excuse that ‘well he started out with a million dollar inheritance”…BS..That isn’t the way Waters and Obummer and the rest of them made their millions. I have known a few ppl that inherited lucrative businesses and lost it all within months. They are just afraid that he will take us back to where we belong…He definitely knows what he is doing….otherwise there wouldn’t be so much FAKE NEWS and whining about Russia (Hitliary and Obummer) collusion.

          5. gvette says:

            What’s funny to me, is fat assed Maxine Waters, who has investments in Russia!

          6. ourzoo10 says:

            Every single one of them that is pointing fingers at President Trump is guilty of what they are accusing him of…How about Hitliary selling 20% of our Uranium to Russia and taking the money….without consulting Congress?!!

          7. gvette says:

            That, and Billy getting paid for speeches over there.
            She was Secretary of State when she pulled that off. She/they got a large donation for that. Christ, through the election, she was getting donations from ever dictator, and despot in the middle east. Correct me if I’m wrong, but foreign money given was illegal. Christ, she has a bare code on her pantsuit!

          8. ourzoo10 says:

            Yup…Some of us DO know the truth..the stupids don’t know and don’t care…They got too many goodies from Obummer and they listen to that FAKE news..instead of using their heads and checking out the facts. Can’t wait until it is finally revealed to the populace (100 years from now) that we had an illegal, unvetted communist play-acting as pResident for 8 l-o-n-g years.

          9. gvette says:

            There are more people then you think, that know gay boy was a Muslim. Sad, they aren’t DemonRATS. They still believe the lie! I know, I run into them on other sites!

          10. ourzoo10 says:

            Yup, so do I…

          11. Harry J Schaubel says:

            It’s the Saul Alinsky method, used by Communists for years. You first accuse others of doing what you’re doing. Then when they point back you can laugh it off saying they’re just trying to weasel out.
            Podesta went to Moscow during the campaign. Hillary is in contact with people in Ukraine for “opposition info”. The Infamous Dossier by Ex-British Secret Service. Is this not the same thing they are up in arms about with PRESIDENT Trump? Not a word about this, tho. The best excuse I heard about why they are not going after the Dems for Their Collusion is “Trump won, Hillary lost”. On that basis you can do anything you want because if you lose it don’t matter. Typical LeftWit philosophy.
            As Gvette says below here. Hillary received millions from foreign governments. But this is not a matter of importance to the Dems. It’s only what PRESIDENT Trump is “rumored” to do that is important!

          12. ourzoo10 says:

            Speaking of Saul Alinsky, I read his book ‘Rules for Radicals’ with high lighter in hand….It is amazing how many times he was quoted by Moooochel…word for word!
            Hitliary received $$ from Russia for the Uranium she sold them without Congress being involved….That, in itself, should upset ppl….Crickets…

          13. Harry J Schaubel says:

            Yes. Mad Maxine. Lives in a $4.1m mansion, NOT EVEN IN HER DISTRICT. Her district is one of the poorest in SoCal. It also has the highest concentration of black, while the area she lives in is only 6%. Can you say “Segregation”?
            I’d sure like to get a look at the ballot box while voting for her goes on, because this is as sure a case of Ballot Stuffing as anything Hillary did.

          14. gvette says:

            Here it is by the numbers. When you have the largest percentage, of some of the dumbest people on the planet living in your district, that’s how you get people like useless Waters!

            15.1% White

            23.6% Black

            12.6% Asian

            46.0% Hispanic

            2.7[1]% other
