​The role of transgender people in the military

Hosted by

President Trump tweeted this morning that transgender people would no longer be allowed to serve in the US military. Thousands of transgender troops are in the military right now. The numbers are unclear because they have only been allowed to serve openly since June 2016. Sage Fox was the first transgender person to serve openly in the military, starting in 2013.
