Sarah, thank you. A couple questions about the new policy on transgender servicemembers the President announced this morning. First, what happens to transgender servicemembers now? Are you they immediately thrown out of the military?
That’s something that the Department of Defense and the White House will have to work together as implementation takes place and is done so lawfully.
So it’s possible – because I see the President was pretty clear in his tweet that transgender individuals – he will not accept or allow a transgender individual to serve in any capacity. So does that mean that those that are now in theater, that are now deployed to Afghanistan, for example, will have to be immediately sent home and discharged?
Again, implementation policy is going to be something that the White House and the Department of Defense have to work together to lawfully determine, and I would imagine the Department of Defense will be the lead on that and keep you posted as that takes place.
Why did he decide to do this given that during the campaign he had declared that he would protect the rights of transgender individuals? He said he would be better on this issue than Hillary Clinton, and now he’s turned the clock back on this issue regarding the military.
