Both as a candidate and as president, Donald Trump has often expressed his determination to rebuild an American military ravaged by eight years of Barack Obama’s sustained wrecking operations. Yesterday, Mr. Trump made a tangible and important step towards delivering on that promise.
With three Tweets, the current Commander-in-Chief announced the reversal of his predecessor’s decision to allow individuals with a mental illness known as gender dysphoria to join the armed forces. This was just one example of President Obama’s practice of contemptuously engaging in social engineering of the military – without regard for its devastating impact on readiness, morale and war-fighting capabilities.
Those in uniform, and those who support them, owe President Trump a debt of thanks for sparing our military services the unjustifiable burdens of transgender troops. Next, he must protect women from being forced to serve in ground combat units.
