President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would not allow transgender individuals to serve in the U.S. military in any capacity. "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," Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts.

"Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail," the Republican president wrote.

The Pentagon ended its ban on openly transgender people serving in the U.S. military last year under Democratic President Barack Obama's administration. It was expected to start allowing transgender people to begin enlisting this year, provided they had been "stable" in their preferred gender for 18 months.

Last month, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis approved a six-month delay in allowing transgender recruits to join the U.S. armed forces.

The delay alarmed transgender advocates. READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Good morning, Catholic Never-Trumpers. Question for you: Are you still convinced that it made absolutely no difference whatsoever where true conservatism and morality are concerned that Mr. Trump beat Mrs. Clinton in the 2016 presidential election?
