The Unites State military headquarter Pentagon announced that it will begin accepting transgender military recruits. This is with reference to that when President Donald Trump s administration decided not to appeal a court order blocking his ban.
Earlier President Trump announced the ban in July on Twitter and followed up with a memo in August directing the Pentagon to stop accepting transgender recruits and to put in policies to deal with those already serving.
The Obama administration had set a July 1 2017 deadline to begin allowing transgender recruits to enlist. Trump’s Defence Secretary James Mattis changed the deadline to January 1 before Trump announced his ban.
