Here we go: Biden overturns Trump’s ban on transgender troops in first moves for Defense Secretary Austin

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden on Monday overturned President Donald Trump’s policy that aimed to ban transgender troops from service.

Biden directed Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to implement a policy that prohibits discrimination against troops based on their gender identity and requires the Pentagon to report within 60 days its progress in unraveling the ban.

Biden said the move makes the nation safer.

“Today, I repealed the discriminatory ban on transgender people serving in the military,” Biden said in a tweet.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