Will trans military recruits be permitted to serve openly in the Trump administration?

Britni Nelson

"No, because President Trump is close-minded to change. It comes from being old-fashioned. He was raised in a different time. I just hope this issue will inspire a conversation that will bring about a new [presidential] administration."

"No. I don’t like Trump. I don’t think he’ll allow trans recruits to serve openly in the military. I don’t feel good about the way he treats most people. I’m very concerned that he won’t give transgender people a fair shake."

Taylor Scott

"I’d be very surprised if Trump allows that to happen. The way the man talks about women is horrendous. How he would talk about the transgender community, I can only imagine. Trump doesn’t seem to believe in equal rights for anyone, except straight white males."

Nicole Wiegand

"I highly doubt it. The man is insane. Pence is no better. Pence’s mission in life seems to be to destroy the LGBT movement. I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for Trump to be fair to the trans community. It’s naïve to think he’s even considering this."
