Transgender ban reversedPresident Biden on Monday repealed former President Trump’s ban on most transgender people serving in the military, the latest action Biden is taking to quickly unravel his predecessor’s policies.

Biden signed an executive order that “sets the policy that all Americans who are qualified to serve in the Armed Forces of the United States should be able to serve,” according to a fact sheet released ahead of newly minted Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's meeting with the president at the White House.

“President Biden believes that gender identity should not be a bar to military service, and that America’s strength is found in its diversity,” the fact sheet said. “Allowing all qualified Americans to serve their country in uniform is better for the military and better for the country because an inclusive force is a more effective force.”
