Trump Tells ‘Traps’ in the US Army to Fuck Off

Trannys? NO, Thanks! Trump Tells 'Traps' in the US Army to Fuck Off

Freaks Transgender people will not be allowed to serve in the American military in any capacity, President Donald Trump said, adding that US forces shouldn’t be “burdened by” medical costs and “disruption” they would bring.

The Pentagon declined to comment on the transgender ban, referring all questions on the issue to the White House.

“We refer all questions about the president’s statements to the White House. We will continue to work closely with the White House to address the new guidance by the commander-in-chief on transgender individuals serving the military.

We will provide revised guidance to the department in the near future,” the Pentagon spokesman said.

Transgender people were allowed to serve in the US military last year under former President Barack Obama’s administration.

They were provided with medical care and the ability to begin formally changing their gender identity in the Pentagon’s personnel system from October 1, 2017.

According to a survey by Rand Corp, there were between 1,320 and 6,630 transgender troops on active duty in the US military in 2016.

Officials told AP that there are currently around 250 troops who have received formal approval to change their gender by the Pentagon, with their fate unclear after the announcement by Trump.

Former US Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who was in charge when transgender people were allowed to openly serve in the military, has slammed Trump for the move.

“To choose service members on other grounds than military qualification is social policy and has no place in our military,” he said in a statement.

Transgender troops have already been serving their country capably and honorably, Carter said.

The best-known American transgender soldier, Chelsea Manning, accused the military of “cowardice” after Trump’s announcement. Chelsea Manning, previously known as Bradley, was responsible for one of the largest leaks of classified documents in US history, supplying WikiLeaks with 700,000 files back in 2010. The whistleblower was handed a 35-year prison sentence in 2013, but the punishment was commuted by outgoing President Barack Obama in January. During the time behind bars, Manning took the name Chelsea and won the battle to start hormone treatment to transition to her female identity.

There’s been a debate on the effect transgender troops may have on the battle readiness of the US military. The commanders are concerned they may have medical and other issues, hampering them in executing their service duties, adding that trangenders may also become targets of discrimination.

The military was initially given until June 1 to evaluate the possible effects of transgender soldiers, with the term then prolonged for another six months.

A Rand Corp survey said there’ll be “minimal impact on readiness and health care costs” due to a small number of transgender troops in the US military.

Earlier this year, the Trump administration reversed federal protections which had come into force under Obama, and which had called upon schools to allow students to use bathrooms in accordance with their gender identity.

Earlier this month Defense Secretary James Mattis also decided to put the brakes on a program to recruit immigrants with special skills known as Military Accessions Vital to National Interest (MAVNI), due to security concerns. Launched in 2008, MAVNI has recruited immigrants with language, medical, and other specialty skills. It allows visa holders, asylees, and refugees to bypass the permanent residency process and become US citizens.

The memo from Mattis cites “the potential threat posed by individuals who may have a higher risk of connections to Foreign Intelligence Services,” and refers to an “elevated” risk of an insider threat, according to NPR.

MAVNI has been frozen pending further review. There are almost 10,000 immigrants in the program, mostly in the Army, according to the memo. About 4,100 troops, already naturalized citizens, may be subject to “enhanced screening” before they can be given security clearances. Another 1,800 recruits awaiting basic training could be given a discharge or have their enlistment contracts canceled. Of those, about 1,000 have had their visas expire and might face deportation, NPR reported.

The program has been “replete with problems to include foreign infiltration, so much so that the Department of Defense is seeking to suspend the program due to those concerns,” Representative Steve Russell (R-Oklahoma) said during a House Armed Services Committee debate on the National Defense Authorization Act last month. “And I can’t really discuss some of that here in this setting, but there are some major issues when it comes to vetting,” he said.

Questions about MAVNI first arose in 2016, when officials discovered that some recruits had presented false educational credentials, according to a legal brief from the Department of Justice.
