President Biden will reverse the transgender military ban perhaps as early as this Monday.
Per the Hill “Biden is expected to sign an executive order reversing Trump’s policy as soon as right after Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is ceremonially sworn in at the White House on Monday, the source said.”
During his confirmation hearing last week, Austin expressed support for lifting the ban .
“I support the president’s plan to overturn the ban,” Austin said “I truly believe, senator, as I said in my opening statement, that if you are fit and you’re qualified to serve and you can maintain the standards, you should be allowed to serve.”
