Protesters gather against Trump ban on transgender troops

"There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the USA military fighting for all of us".

She said transgender members have been allowed to openly serve in the USA military since past year after the Obama administration ended a ban.

The White House said it doesn't have a timeline for the Department of Defense as to how exactly this new policy would work. G he thinks two men should just be friends, B to his dumb knowledge is just a phase in college, T he finds confusing so the army is now refusing Trans women who only want to serve, Trans men who want rights we all deserve. Despite Trump's claim that transgender people are a "burden" to the military, the Rand study found that allowing transgender people to serve openly "would have a minimal impact on readiness and health care costs".

"To just disregard them because they're being who they are is just wrong", he said.

The Pentagon has asked the White House for a written directive spelling out its intentions and directions on transgender policy so the military can now begin implementing guidance, according to a defense official with direct knowledge.

Jenner, who voted for Donald Trump, caught flack earlier in the day when the ban was announced.

"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 delayed that before his tweets Wednesday.

"The president's tweet this yet another example of why major policy announcements should not be made via Twitter", he said.

"We provide care, benefits and other VA services to all Veterans, including transgender Veterans", said Curt Cashour, Press Secretary, Department of Veterans Affairs, in a statement.

United Kingdom's Second Sea Lord Vice Admiral Jonathan Woodcock said he will always support the desire of the Royal Navy's transgender soldiers to serve their country.

Matt Thorn, executive director of OutServe-SLDN, which represents the LGBT population in the military, said thousands have been serving in the USA armed forces without causing any issues.

President Trump's recent tweets proclaiming a change in policy for transgender troops is a disappointment for one Anchorage veteran. It doesn't want anyone who is different to have the same rights they do. "The governor respects the ability of generals and military leaders to decide the force America needs".

"The Department of Defense has already chose to allow currently-serving transgender individuals to stay in the military, and many are serving honorably today".

Here's what Fanning is telling NBC's "Today Show": "If you're a transgender service member anywhere in the world, you are very nervous about what you're hearing, and now you're probably very confused and very frightened about what the future holds for you, when your commander in chief tweets a message like this, essentially dismissing your service".
