REP. AMI BERA DENOUNCES TRUMP ADMINISTRATION'S TRANSGENDER BAN ON MILITARY SERVICE
Sacramento, C.A. – Congressman Ami Bera (D-CA) issued the following statement in response to the Trump administration’s ban on transgender people serving in the military:
“If you wear an American military uniform, you deserve the respect and support of the Commander-in-Chief. Unfortunately, Donald Trump is more comfortable peddling in discrimination and bigotry, and he’s shown that he is unable to support our troops.
Thousands of transgender men and women serve in the United States military. Removing these men and women from service or refusing recruits because of who they are goes against every American value they swear to defend. To those who serve, thank you for your sacrifice. You deserve better.”
