President Trump to Take Official Steps to Deliver on Promises to the Troops

The Wall Street Journal and Reuters have reported that President Donald Trump will issue a 2½ page guidance directing the Department of Defense to essentially reinstate policies regarding transgenders in the military, which were in effect before President Barack Obama changed them at the end of his term in office.  White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that an announcement on the issue would be released soon.  The following comments may be attributed to Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military Readiness:

“It is difficult to comment on the reported guidance from President Donald Trump without seeing the document in question, and it’s too soon to know how the Department of Defense will implement the President’s intent in coming months.

“With those caveats stated, the Center for Military Readiness applauds President Donald Trump’s reported intent to take official steps to halt a massive social experiment in the armed forces.

“It appears that Pentagon officials will have six more months to reinstate policies regarding eligibility that were in place before President Barack Obama unilaterally imposed his transgender agenda on the armed forces during his closing months in office.
