A Political and National Problem

After vowing To fight for "L G B T Q" people, Trump shows his true colors.

President Donald Trump has announced he’s reversing the Pentagon’s 2016 decision to allow transgender people to serve in the U.S. military.

Yesterday, even his one time supporter, Caitlyn Jenner made this comment:

There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the US military fighting for all of us. What happened to your promise to fight for them?  Caitlyn Jenner July 26, 2017
Supporter or not of transgenders in the military, a lie is a lie. Take a look at the complete NY Times list of Trump's Lies.  

Maybe his supporters will finally start to understand, as his deceitfulness become evident to one group after another, he is not to be trusted. We cannot believe anything the says. A political and national problem! 


  1. Sadly, this is going to get worse before it gets better. He is trying to distract us from his efforts to kill the Russia probe, as that will likely result in exposure of treason by him or his family. His supporters are still loyal because they can not admit that they made the biggest political mistake of their lives. As such, they will defend them until an event removes this man from power - such as pissing off too many GOP lawmakers.

    I don't expect that a policy announced via tweet is legal. Until a formal executive order is announced, the military has no cause to change direction. And even if such order is given, they still have to grandfather in the existing transgenders, as they were admitted or were allowed to reenlist under previous policy. Either way, POTUS will look bad with the very people who are charged with carrying out his policy....

    1. Very good points Marian. I believe the whole mess to be a total distraction also. But still a mean spirited distraction. Tweets are not legal directives.

      Thanks for the comment...

  2. I am not even sure that an executive order can address the comments of the tweets.
    I would look at the comments of Senator McCain regarding the status of what is going on with transgender people in the military.
    I would also refer you to the statement by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Marine General Joseph Dunford issued the following statement: "There will be no modifications to the current policy until the President's direction has been received by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary has issued implementation guidance. In the meantime we will treat all of our personnel with respect..."
    A tweet is a far cry from a presidential directive to the Secretary of Defense.
