Trump Administration Insults All Working People with LGBTQ Actions

Why Christians Should Applaud the President’s Ban on Transgenders in the Military Trump Administration Insults All Working People with LGBTQ Actions

CNN interviewed more than a dozen lawmakers, congressional aides, defense officials and lobbyists about Mattis' relations with Congress, most of whom spoke on condition of anonymity to offer a candid assessment of the defense secretary's performance.

He added that the "Obama-era social engineering is over".

Of the 45 signatures collected, only one Republican signed the letter. She served 10 years in the military, both in the Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.

The commander in chief's early morning tweets on Wednesday calling for reinstatement of the ban laid out a bogus argument, leaving out the most important point: This is a political move meant to appease Trump's base and to push Democrats "to take complete ownership of this issue", according to an unidentified Trump administration official quoted by Jonathan Swan, a national political reporter for Axios.

Earlier this week Donald Trump surprised the military and political world by announcing the transgender ban via Twitter. Demonstrators flocked to a plaza named for San Francisco gay-rights icon Harvey Milk to protest President Donald Trump's abrupt ban on transgender troops in the military.

In addition, too many people seemed to miss out on a really important question: were there any transgender individuals even really planning on joining the military?

The vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, provided more insight on that decision, saying "Our decision to delay the accessions ... was largely based on a disagreement on the science of how mental-health care and hormone therapy for transgender individuals would help solve the medical issues that are associated with gender dysphoria".

Carter wasn't the only critic of Trump's announcement.

Is everyone in that 41 percent just a terrible bigot who should be ignored or should we put more stock in their opinions?

The decision was delayed by Trump's Defence Secretary James "Mad Dog" Mattis - and the President confirmed yesterday that he would reverse the decision put the ban back in place. But key deputy positions at the Pentagon remained vacant for months. "And it's a problem". "But that's not happened yet", Davis said.

It's an interesting footnote that on the same date in 1948, President Harry S. Truman issued Executive Order 9981, which abolished racial discrimination in the military.

"If this is the will of the Congress, I'm confident that the commander in chief would be in your corner all the way", Mattis said. The Lambda Democratic Club board voted unanimously to take immediate action with its membership throughout Contra Costa County to combat this reversal in policy and to advocate within the Democratic Party of Contra Costa County and the California Democratic Party, including the Veterans Caucus and the LGBT Caucus. Turner was trying to kill the creation of a new Space Corps, but the House Rules Committee did not allow his measure to get a vote.

At its core, this decision was made with our service members in mind and as the Commander in Chief, President Trump has a duty to ensure our troops are focused on matters such as defeating ISIS, not making budget cuts to fund costly surgeries.

The amendment, which was defeated in a 209-214 vote, threatened to overshadow the typically bipartisan defense bill, and many Republican leaders preferred to avoid the fight, according to congressional aides.
