Schumer “President Biden just lifted the Trump administration’s heinous, discriminatory ban on transgender Americans serving in our military”

Monday, President Biden signed an executive order reversing the Trump administration’s 2018 transgender military ban.

Biden tweeted “Today, I repealed the discriminatory ban on transgender people serving in the military. It’s simple: America is safer when everyone qualified to serve can do so openly and with pride.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer cheered the move, tweeting “This is big news: President Biden just lifted the Trump administration’s heinous, discriminatory ban on transgender Americans serving in our military. Trans rights are human rights!”
