Judge Blocks President Trump's Transgender Military Ban

A U.S. District Court judge has the town talking this week because she made sure to put a stop to Donald Trump's Transgender plan. For now at least.

According to Deadline,

Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia issued an injunction blocking enforcement of the ban until the case was resolved. That returns situation to status quo, pending the outcome of the case.


In a series of tweets on July 26, Trump announced:
“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 disruptions that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.”
Late night TV hosts massacred Trump that night. Stephen Colbert tackled the topic at the top of Late Show:
“Why the hell would he do this? This isn’t even one of his campaign promises,”
Colbert wondered. In fact, during his campaign, Trump had tweeted:
“Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten our freedoms and beliefs.”
“What the hell does he think the ‘T’ in LGBT stands for?” 

Colbert wondered.

Where do YOU stand on this?
