WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that the U.S. will not allow transgender people to serve in the military.

President Trump tweeted:

After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to  serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.
