President Donald Trump made a major announcement Wednesday morning via Twitter, informing the nation that transgender individuals will no longer be allowed to serve in the military due to certain risks and medical costs that accompany gender transitions. His sudden announcement has of course become very controversial.
Most conservatives are pleased with his bold decision in doing what’s best for our country instead of giving into “political correctness.” However, the left is outraged.
Not only are liberals upset with President Trump, but they are also very frustrated with First Daughter Ivanka Trump. On June 1st of 2017 (the start of LGBT Pride Month), Ivanka tweeted her support for the LGBT community.
After Trump’s transgender military announcement, many retweeted Ivanka’s previous post, claiming she does not truly care for the rights of LGBT individuals. One user asked, “When are you going to stand up to [President Donald Trump?]”
Although the left is not pleased with Trump’s decision, Christian evangelist Franklin Graham agrees with the president’s bold move. What are your thoughts on Trump banning transgenders from serving in the military? Share your thoughts in our Facebook comments. Thank you!
