President Trump’s Transgender Announcement Supports the Troops

On Wednesday. July 26, President Donald Trump announced that he would discontinue administrative directives ordering the armed forces to accommodate transgenders in the military.  The following comments may be attributed to Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military Readiness:

“The Center for Military Readiness applauds President Trump for showing decisive leadership in announcing his intent to halt a massive social experiment in the armed forces.  This action is necessary because Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, wrongly ordered the military to assume the risks of retaining and recruiting a cohort of persons who are suffering from gender dysphoria – a psychological condition that involves confusion about gender identity.

“President Donald Trump had every right and responsibility to announce an end to his predecessor’s most extreme imposition of political correctness in our military.

“The military health system (MHS) is designed to be a national security force multiplier.  It should not be misused to indulge transgender demands and theories that are contradicted by biological realities, science, and common sense.  Expensive life-long hormone treatments and irreversible surgeries associated with gender dysphoria would negatively affect personal deployability and mission readiness, without resolving underlying psychological problems, including high risks of suicide.
