On Wednesday, the President tweeted the government, "will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military".
Trump stated the reason for the ban is due to, "the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail".
"Makes me angry, it makes me really angry, but this is the war that we have to fight right here in our homeland", Bender said. Trump had tweeted at the time, during the presidential campaign, that he would fight for the LGBT community. Veterans who have made sacrifices for this country deserve all of the support we can give them, from thanking them for their service to ensuring they are treated with respect when they go to the Veterans Administration.
"He's also voiced that this is a very expensive and disruptive policy and based on conversations that he's had with his national security team came to the conclusion that it erodes military readiness and unit cohesion", said Sanders. It found that only 0.1 to 0.5 percent of active military members were transgender or gender non-conforming, and that only a small percentage each year would seek gender-transition-related care while they were enlisted.
According to a 2016 study by the Rand Corporation commissioned by the Department of Defense, there are about 11,000 transgender people in active duty and the reserves.
The tweets put Trump on blast asking him if he knows that a large percentage of trans people ages 18 to 24 have attempted suicide at some point in their lives.

Trump says transgender people in the military would be a tremendous disruption.
What is even more surprising is that while announcing this decision on "Twitter", Trump revoked a year-old policy and in a way sidelined his defence secretary James Mattis as well. Since Oct. 1, transgender troops have been able to receive medical care and start formally changing their gender identifications in the Pentagon's personnel system. Thousands of transgender Americans are already in the military. Why?
The tweet from the Canadian Armed Forces' official account included a photo of military band members marching in a parade with rainbow flags fluttering from their instruments. "The Pentagon isn't defying orders", Hasson said, "They're waiting for them".
The comedian then defended the "amazingly fearless trans people" who should be able to join the military, as well as those who are already serving or who have in the past. She said her fellow service-members were supportive too.
