Last week, in a series of tweets, President Trump wrote: “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.”
The President’s announcement came just weeks after Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that he will defer implementation of the transgender policy until January 1, 2018. The Obama-era policy would have allowed incoming service members identifying as “transgender” to enlist if they have been “stable” in their gender identity for 18 months.
Now, LGBTQ organizations and their radical support base are rallying their base to stop President Trump’s reversal of the Obama administrations’ egregious decision. That’s why Liberty Counsel Action is petitioning President Trump, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the leadership of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees to stay the course and keep the welfare and safety of our troops utmost – and to stop forcing social experimentation into their ranks.
If you agree that the United States military is a unique community and should be exempt from social experimentation that could possibly diminish troop safety and readiness, click here to have your name automatically added to our petition.
+ + Liberty Counsel Action pushed for this policy change!
Liberty Counsel Action has been involved in this military issue by meeting with White House officials and others about the need to reverse the Obama policy. Jonathan Alexandre, our Director of Public Policy in Washington, DC, met with White House officials and discussed this issue, stressing the importance of the President’s power to direct his generals to prioritize unit cohesion and military readiness rather than sacrificing them to the demands of the transgender lobby.

P.S. The United States military is not the place for social experimentation, a proving ground for gender identity theories, or a place to get free medical care for sex change operations. It is not a social club, a social experimentation Petri dish, or ClubMed. The focus should always be military readiness and unit cohesion.
“In support of the United States of America’s world-class military and those who serve, I stand with President Trump in determining that “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory…” and not politically correct distractions from their core mission.
The United States military is not the place for social experimentation, a proving ground for gender identity, or a place to get free medical care for sex change operations.
Please keep social experimentation out of our military. End the Obama administration’s social experimentation.”
