Congressman Johnson on President Trump Signing Memorandum Banning Transgender Troops

August 28, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Hank Johnson released the following statement after President Trump signed a memorandum ordering the Pentagon to block transgender Americans from enlisting in the military: 

“Everyone, including our transgender men and women who bravely serve our country in uniform, deserve our respect and support. Instead, this Contrarian-in-Chief subjects them to discrimination by threatening to prevent them from serving in our armed services. We cannot allow this kind of blatant bigotry to go unchecked in the land of the free and the home of the brave."
