Trump’s ban on transgender people being able to serve in the military has failed.
President Donald Trump’s ban on transgender men and women serving in the US military has been halted by the Defense Secretary, General Jim Mattis.
Transgender personal will be able to continue serving in the US military for the time being after Secretary Mattis has said that the ban’s implication needs further scrutiny.
In a statement, Mr Mattis said, “current policy with respect to currently serving members will remain in place”.
