A federal Judge is stopping President Trump from changing the government’s policy on transgender service members.
After discussing with his top Generals and those in charge of Military readiness and policy. The President announced in August 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.
U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly wrote Monday that transgender members of the military who had sued over the change were likely to win their lawsuit and barred the Trump administration from reversing course.
