DC court puts on hold Trump’s effort to reverse Obama transgender troops policy….

Rough day for Donald J. Trump….

I wonder what Defense Sec Mattis actually thinks about this, which lets him off the hook from doing something I think he didn’t want to touch….

A federal court in Washington is barring President Donald Trump from changing the government’s policy on military service by transgender people.

Trump announced in an August memo that he intended to reverse course on a 2016 policy that allowed troops to serve openly as transgender individuals. He said he would order a return to the policy prior to June 2016, under which service members could be discharged for being transgender.

Trump is going his own way on this….And it’s Not against President Obama  completely….Hmmmm?

Donald Trump on Friday declined to criticize the Obama administration’s directive to public schools that transgender people be allowed to use the restrooms that match their gender identity.

“I believe it should be states’ rights and I think the states should make the decision, they’re more capable of making the decision,” Trump said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Asked directly if he was against the administration’s directive, Trump responded, “I just think it should be states’ rights. I think many things actually should be states’ rights, but this is a perfect example of it.”
