Florida Family Association sent out email alerts on August 7, 2017 and August 9, 2017 that asked people to send emails and post comments at Whitehouse.gov, Twitter.com and Facebook.com to show support for President Trump’s tweet that called for the reversal of Obama’s policy regarding transgenders in the military. Public protests and the progressive media targeted President Trump with much ridicule in hopes of pressuring him to change his mind. Florida Family Association’s prepared email and suggested social media posts stated in part: “I strongly support your proposal to reverse Obama's transgender policy and urge you to have the DoD promptly implement it.” The full email alert is posted here.
Thousands of people sent emails and posted messages on social media to demonstrate support for President Trump’s tweet and urged him to promptly implement it.
President Trump has ordered the Pentagon to stop admitting transgenders in the military and to stop paying for transgender reassignment medical procedures and surgeries. The Hill reported on August 25, 2017 at 6:19 pm titled: Trump signs order barring transgender people from enlisting in the military.
It is important to thank President Trump for quickly following through with his tweet of July 26, 2017 in which he stated: “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.”
