The president tweeted that after consulting with "Generals and military experts", the government "will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military".

On NBC's "The Tonight Show", host Jimmy Fallon opened the show by noting that Trump says he's banning transgender individuals from serving due to "high medical costs". "They don't know - what does this mean to them specifically?" she said.

Trump's surprise announcement, in a series of Twitter posts on Wednesday, drew condemnation from rights groups and some lawmakers in both USA political parties as discrimination with purely political motives.

Nor did a spokesman for Cheney. That would disrupt core military missions around the world and needlessly endanger our troops. "The governor respects the ability of generals and military leaders to decide the force America needs. I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten our freedoms and beliefs".

Trump's announcement has led to widespread criticism from the two parties' congressmen, as well as social activists and celebrities. Spokesman and Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said the Pentagon was working with the White House to "address the new guidance" from Trump, which suggested that a plan or new policy was not now prepared.

Ahead of Trump's announcement, his defense chief, Jim Mattis, said recently the Pentagon would delay Carter's order through the remainder of 2017 in order to review the impact of the shift.

Cleveland Cavaliers In Talks To Sign Derrick Rose To 1-Year Deal
Derrick Rose might just be the next ex-Knick to get a shot to chase an National Basketball Association title with LeBron James . The move gives the Cavs a decent player off the bench, but it could still not be enough for them to beat the Warriors .

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a press briefing Wednesday that Trump consulted with his national security team and believed the current policy "erodes military readiness and unit cohesion".

A spokesman for the F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne said the Air Force will "work closely with the (Department of Defense) to address the new guidance provided by the commander in chief".

As we learned on Wednesday that transgender people would not be able to serve in the u.s. A RAND study found that there are between 2,500 and 7,000 transgender service members in the active duty military, and another 1,500 to 4,000 in the reserves. She called it a "cavalier" way of relaying news that could affect thousands of service members and suggested the move was motivated by politics.

She said the transgender community "will not stop fighting" for justice. That's a fraction of a fraction of the military's annual health care budget of almost $48 billion.

President Donald Trump's abrupt ban on transgender troops serving anywhere in the USA military caught the Pentagon flat-footed. She gave a shoutout to Kristin Beck, a retired Navy SEAL who served for 22 years and earned numerous medals, including the Purple Heart and Bronze Star.

But Hasson, who left the military in 2015, says this isn't about culture war issues, this is specific to the military, which has specific physical readiness standards.
