Transgender Service Members Accuse Trump of Discrimination

Trump would back anti-Russia measure at Congress: Sarah Huckabee Sanders

He added, "Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and can not be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail".

US President Donald Trump is set to sign a Russian Federation sanctions measure by the US Congress, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says.

"I don't now why people don't like you". Huckabee Sanders laughed and said: "Dylan, I'm not sure but I know it's a lot".

According to Sanders, President Trump came to the conclusion that it is "expensive and disruptive" to maintain transgender service members in active duty.

"As a working mom, it's not lost on me what a great honor and what a privilege it is to stand here at the podium and I thank the President for the opportunity", she said. Former Defense Secretary Ashton Carter implemented it last year after a year-long review.

A White House spokeswoman is not saying what will happen to transgender troops now serving in the military after President Donald Trump said transgender people should be barred from the armed services.

"I think the president, as always, enjoys healthy competition and conversation, and he sees that as such", Sanders told reporters during the White House press briefing.

"Guys, I don't have anything more to add on that topic". He asked Trump several questions, including, "How much monny do you have?" and "can we be friends?"

But if you read closely, the letter revealed that there's interest even among 9-year-old Trump superfans for the president's tax returns.

Unfortunately, "real" "person" "Dylan" didn't get as much attention as Sanders would have liked.

Sanders read the piece of fan mail before moving on to deflect questions on the administration's new ban on transgender military service.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who just weeks ago delayed accepting new transgender service members into the armed services for six months until the issue of providing health care and services could be studied further, is on vacation this week, and it is unclear if he knew about president's announcement.

"No, I can not confirm that Sean Spicer will be on Dancing with the Stars before leaving the White House", she said as reporters laughed.

A source close to leadership texts his reaction to the joint statement (summing up the sentiment I've heard from several prominent tax lobbyists in Washington): "That tax statement is unbelievable".

Huckabee Sanders joked about Scaramucci and the use of makeup, then, becoming earnest, put forward "a little reminder of why we're all here every day, which I imagine for most of us is because we love our country and want to make it better".

Currently, the Department of Defense's policy on transgender individuals serving the military, published on the DoD website, states: "Effective immediately, transgender Service members may serve openly, and they can no longer be discharged or otherwise separated from the military exclusively for being transgender individuals".
