First Federal Lawsuit Filed Against President Trump's Ban On Transgender Troops

First Federal Lawsuit Filed Against President Trump's Ban On Transgender Troops

"I have great respect for the community", Trump said from his New Jersey golf club, referring to transgender people.

"I think I have support, or I've had great support, from that community".

General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the U.S. military, has said there will be "no modification" to the military's transgender policy until the White House issues a directive through formal channels.

"I think I'm doing the military a great favor".

But Trump said the issue of transgender troops has been a "very hard situation" for the USA armed forces.

In his defend, Trump said he has announced the ban as they could not afford the medical costs of supporting transgender people, although he couldn't explain what are these special medical costs.

Additionally Sealed Air Corporation recently announced a dividend for shareholders to be paid on Friday September 15th, 2017. Following the sale, the executive vice president now owns 86,410 shares in the company, valued at approximately $3,283,580.

Five transgender women in the USA military filed suit against Trump and the Pentagon this week over the ban. As you know, it's been a very complicated issued for the military. While the president claimed he had consulted with his "generals and military experts", not a single one of them has come out in support of his proposed ban.

Meanwhile, GLAD and the National Center for Lesbian Rights filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction against Trump's directive to reinstate a ban.

Trump had tweeted the ban on July 26 sending military leaders and LGBTQ advocates in a tizzy.

In short, President Trump doesn't know the first thing about this policy he tweeted one morning two weeks ago, barely hours after likely learning his former campaign chairman's home had just been searched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation under a no-knock warrant. "Fortunately, a Pentagon working group had already been established to deal with the issue as part of Defense Secretary James Mattis's order to delay the enlistment of people confused about their gender".

The Obama administration ended the ban on transgender service members in 2016, and many have come out and serve openly. "The detailed assessment and management of these complex cases by commanders would have been substantial", the letter continues.
