Trump bans transgender troops

President Donald Trump, in a series of Tweets, said he was banning transgender troops from serving anywhere in the military. That brought swift condemnation from a number of people including former vice-president Al Gore who said he doubted Trump talked to top military commanders before making his decision as he claimed.
Meanwhile, our military says it is continuing to work on improvements to its transgender policy which is expected to be updated this fall.

DND, which lifted its ban on transgender people and L-G-B-T members in 1992, responded in a tweet that it welcomes Canadians of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
