Transgender ban in militaryPresident Trump’s ban on transgender military personnel went into effect on Friday, nearly two years after he first announced the plan via a series of tweets. In July 2017, Trump tweeted that “transgender individuals” would no longer be allowed “to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military.”

The policy reverses a 2016 decision by former President Obama that transgender individuals could serve their country openly, having found that they have minimal financial impact on the military.
