The President of the United States, Donald Trump who said during his election campaign that he is a real friend of the LGBT community and accused Hillary Clinton of prioritising “Islamic extremists” over LGBT Americans has shocking stated he will ban all transgenders from serving in the US army.

Trump took to Twitter to announce his impending ban, saying:

“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.” 

“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. Thank you,” he added.

Meanwhile, in June 2016, the same Trump tweeted this about his support for the LGBT community;  “Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.”
