In a series of posts on Twitter, President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that the United States military will no longer “accept or allow” transgender people. “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,” he tweeted.
Today, the Department of Defense responded to threats and LGBTQ advocacy group protests by saying there would not yet be any “modifications to the current policy” on transgender service members until "the President’s direction has been received by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary has issued implementation guidance."
Today on “Dana,” Dana Loesch pointed out the many standard disqualifying conditions for which people might be rejected from the military, such as being flatfooted, having anxiety issues, and even peanut allergies.
“Service is not a right. You don't have the right to serve. The military is physically and emotionally discriminatory for a reason,” said Dana.
