BREAKING NEWS on Transgenders in Military…This is a BOMBSHELL

President Donald Trump dropped a bombshell on the U.S. military and any transgender individuals who might be considering serving their country in the armed forces.

In a series of Wednesday morning tweets, Trump said that transgenders will not be allowed to serve “in any capacity” in the U.S. 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,” he wrote over a series of three tweets. “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.”

There are currently an estimated 7,000 active-duty troops serving in America’s 1.3 million-strong force. Cost has always been an issue in accepting transgender recruits. The Military Times reports:

“The services had sought an undisclosed sum for related facilities upgrades, including, it appears, to retrofit group showers and make other unspecified accommodations within communal living spaces. “That funding,” the official said, “did not come through.”

Brace yourselves folks, there is about to be a lot of coverage of this story over the next few days.
