    In June, a legislative landmark in the struggle for LGBT equality in America stalled, just hours before it was due to be implemented, when Defense Secretary James Mattis halted an Obama-era bill allowing transgender people to serve in the military.

    On Wednesday, President Donald Trump tweeted that not only would transgender people be barred from enlisting, but they would be barred from serving “in any capacity.”

    Trump cited the “tremendous medical costs and disruption” he claimed transgender service personnel would entail as grounds for the move.
