There’s just one problem with the @realdonaldtrump's otherwise commendable Veterans Day remarks: He continues to discriminate against an entire class of veterans through his administration’s transgender military ban.@brad_polumbo— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) November 11, 2019

Here’s the latest from Brad Polumbo who is the conservative homosexual columnist who writes for the Washington Examiner and who polices people who associate with Nick Fuentes and Scott Greer and the America First movement.
“It’s completely understandable that Trump and other conservatives would be concerned about the cost of covering transgender-related healthcare. But as the RAND study makes clear, the cost isn’t prohibitive: It’s a tiny, tiny fraction of military healthcare spending. In fact, the military spends five times as much on Viagra as transgender healthcare, according to the Washington Post.
But even if the cost is a roadblock for conservatives, that would just be a reason to refuse coverage for transition-related care. The other costs involved just don’t justify an all-out ban on transgender military service. …
Still, it’s certainly true that transgender people are more likely to experience certain mental health issues and require medical treatment that complicates their ability to serve. But this is true for the group broadly, not every individual. Any transgender person who can meet the same requirements as anyone else and receive medical and psychiatric clearance to serve should be allowed to do so.
Anything else is blatant, baseless discrimination.
Trump’s discriminatory ban continues to hurt veterans and transgender people who want to serve. In an article for Time, transgender veteran Dana Delgado writes: “A military that allows people to serve openly and honestly will be stronger for it. As we celebrate Veterans Day and recognize the commitment and sacrifice of those who served, I hope other transgender service members will again have the experience of wearing that uniform knowing they can be their true selves.”
