President Donald Trump faced waves of backlash Wednesday after he announced a ban on transgender individuals serving openly in the military — but a recent survey showed that a majority of Americans say the president's previously announced delay on the Obama-era directive is either a good thing or that it has no impact at all.

Trump announced the Obama-era policy reversal in a series of tweets. "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. 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," Trump tweeted.
