WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday, U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris released the following statement on the President’s decision to remove all transgender individuals from serving in the military:

 

“The President’s decision to force transgender individuals out of the military is discriminatory, wrong, and un-American. We should not punish or turn away courageous people who are willing to risk their lives to serve our country—we should embrace them.

 

“The President’s claim that the service of transgender people impacts military readiness is not backed up by facts, nor is it publicly supported by our military leadership. Removing thousands of transgender individuals currently serving would damage our security and make it more difficult to recruit the best possible fighting force going forward. Indeed, Secretary Mattis recently reaffirmed that all service members should be treated with dignity and respect. The White House is playing politics with our national security, plain and simple.”

 

“As we mark the anniversary today of the desegregation of our armed forces, I stand with our transgender service members and all those who selflessly defend our country.”

  1. I am very proud of President Trump on this decision. It is not a wrong decision. That’s why I didn’t vote for this garbage Kamela Harris.

      • Pam, so if gods a man does he have testicles and a penis? Since this is a biological/scientific topic, let’s not depend on a book of hearsay and myths before the age of science to teach us science okay?

    • I totally agree Aaron. As a military veteran, transgender persons should NEVER, EVER be allowed to serve in our military. Our war fighters primary mission is to maintain unit cohesion and operational readiness. The last thing our War Fighters need to worry about is Washington politicians turning our military into a liberal/progressive political correctness social experiment to advance the abnormal sexual proclivities of the gay community.

      If these individuals want to become Transgender then wait until you leave the military and pay for it yourself. Whether in the military or in the civilian world this is considered voluntary, cosmetic surgery and it should be paid by the government. Our soldiers, sailors, marines, and airman desperately need higher salaries and NEW and improved equipment and weapons to defend our Nation. Not one dime should be spent to make a man a woman and vice versa.

      What these individuals actually need is complete, comprehensive psychological screening and counseling to determine what has broken their psyche to the point that they now believe the answer to all their mental & emotional problems will be resolved by artificially changing their sex organs.

      The unnatural desire to change the sex you are born with is NOT a identity problem, Transgenderism is a mental health problem that requires psychiatric intervention.

      • Correction: becoming transgender is a voluntary cosmetic surgery and our government SHOULD NOT pay for it by any means!!!!

      • Gary Gilbert……….. Can you imagine what the enemy would do if they capture a transgendered soldier? I mean, the enemy like ISIS! What they would do to this person cannot even be described here.

        Trump is doing the right thing! I’m so proud of him! He has done more in 6 months than most of the presidents put together have in their 4 to 8 years!

      • So, I presume you’re also against yourself and your fellow service members receiving viagra while serving? Given that viagra costs the military significantly more than medical transitioning for transgender soldiers.

        • If your question is directed to me then YES I am absolutely against the military providing Viagra to male service members. Any man needing it should pay for it out of their own pocket at a drug store like anyone else.

          The only caveat would be is if it is needed to treat a diagnosed medical condition and the use Viagra is required by their personal physician.

  2. I agree Aaron. Pres Trump is right and Kamela is wrong as usual. Of course, she represents the new world order of what’s right is wrong and what’s wrong is right!

  3. There are thousands of transgender Americans serving our country right now. These men and women are putting there life on the line for our freedom, who am I to tell them it’s wrong to let them. The fact that they serve us as Americans and sacrifice so much to do it ( sometimes there own life and limb) should allow them the same benefits of any great soldier. Because some people don’t understand or even try to understand their struggles in life ,should not preclude them for serving their country. If we have the money to shell out for Eractile disfunction (which by the way is more then transgender treatment) then we shouldn’t be worried about the reletiveive small amount of the military budget spent on treatment. These people are human and we should treat them as such.

      Your right, it’s not up to you or me to tell Transgenders that they can’t serve in the military. However, POTUS as Commander-in-Chief does have this authority and I support and applaud him for reversing Obama’s politically correct sexually depraved social experiment on our military. Our military leaders and service members are disgusted and angry that they are being forced to endure this perverted lifestyle in their ranks. I have two sons currently serving and they have informed me their peers are beyond happy that Trump has made the decision to remove transgender individuals from the military because they are sick and tired of homosexuals trying to force them to accept the gay agenda!!!!

      If a individual with diabetes, asthma or flat feet aren’t allowed to serve in the military why should we allow transgender individuals to serve? Especially since their secret motivation is to have the government pay for their sex change operation? If these individuals are so determined to serve let them wait until they are discharged and pay for the surgery themselves? As previously noted, this is a voluntary, cosmetic surgery and should not be paid by taxpayers. Instead of the government paying for military sex changes this money would be better spent giving our military personnel a higher, well deserved pay raise.

      The purpose, mission and charge of the military is to protect our Nation from our enemies, foreign and domestic. Thank you President Trump for having the strength, courage, vision, and common sense to rid our military of a gay agenda social experiment that is an embarrassment to our war fighters!!!

  4. I agree with Trumps decision, but not necessarily a Trump supporter (moderate Republican). I don’t understand transgender people either, but I can’t help but notice more men become women than women become men.

    This is a mental health problem.

  5. I agree with the President and I am already sick of Kamala Harris. However, I do not personally have a problem with a transgender serving if he/she has already had the transgender surgeries, no longer requires medications/hormones, and has no other health issues. I believe transgenders should be excluded THE SAME AS ANYONE ELSE that might want to join but has medical issues that prevent them from serving. Can the deaf join? The blind? Diabetics?? It is not discrimatory, it is realistic. Our military needs to be ready and waiting at all times.
    And, as a side note, it sickens me that there are people who join the military for the perks and not to actually serve and defend our country.

  6. HEY ARRON AND PAM,YOU TWO PIECES OF WORK DON’T KNOW A DAMN THING!!!!!FIRST OF ALL THAT ORANGE IDIOT DOES’NT KNOW CRAP,HES HIRING AND FIRING BECAUSE OF HIS STUPIDITY..HES A FRICKEN RACIST LIKE YOUS,EVERYTHING OBAMA CREATE HE WANTS TO DESTROY WHY BECAUSE OF JELIOSY AND HATRED…WHOS HE PROVING THIS TO? THE KKK AND THE WIZARD…..ITS FINE ON THE LONG RUN, WE ALL HAVE TO PAY…..AND KARMAS A BITCH………….ENOUGH SAID,I’AM JUST WASTING MY TIME WITH HIS STUPID FOLLOWERS,HAVE A NICE DAY…………………………….

    • Hey John, either your cap lock is stuck or you are overdosing on your hormone pills. Please refrain from posting your hormone fueled rage against our commander and chief. He is after all OUR President. It’s sad that this is all upsetting to you, to the point of you coming across as completely unhinged.

      Posting hatered filled rants, when opposing hatred only qualifies you as a hypocrite.

      Have a nice day………. and please for the love of God, unlock your caps key. Thank you.

    • Johnny Ramirez, show me a law which says it is against the law to be ‘racist!” I’ll wait for your response. Who is this “Wizard” you’re referring to? Wizard of Oz, perhaps? What “jeliosy” is Trump displaying? A president has the right to hire or fire anyone he sees fit. Obama tried to make this country into a BANANA REPUBLIC, but we wouldn’t let him. Trump is just cleaning up the mess made by Obama. Is that a problem?

  7. I support the President and his decision. Kamela Harris is a typical California politician with no moral values.

  8. I watched a co-worker change his sex from man to woman. She took several years of pre-assignment surgery mental therapy and hormones. The operation was completed with a 5 day hospital stay. But she continued to need medical attention for several years. She suffered a lot to become a woman. I can only imagine the uselessness of military personnel during the times they are suffering. I have nothing against a post assigned person in the military. Their performance is only hindered by any medications needed to continue their gender appearance.
