Top Republican Breaks with Trump After Ban on Transgender Troops

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) on Wednesday said the U.S. should not “be discriminating against anyone” in response to President Trump’s announcement that he will ban all transgender people from serving in the military.

“I don’t think we should be discriminating against anyone. Transgender people are people, and deserve the best we can do for them,” the senator said in a statement.

“I look forward to getting much more information and clarity from our military leaders about the policy the President tweeted today.”

A little earlier, Hatch said he stands with transgender individuals in his state in response to a tweet from a grassroots group in Utah that opposes the president.

Hatch’s response came shortly after President Trump announced Wednesday that he will ban transgender people from all military service.
“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,” Trump announced on Twitter.

“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.”

The proposal constitutes a major shift in United States military policy and comes one year after the Obama administration removed the ban on letting transgender individuals openly serve.

    Sorry, Senator Hatch. You’re waaay out ‘over your skis’ on this issue. Our Military is not an international ‘Gender ID Clinic’for confused soldier wanna-bees. They need to FOCUS on the job at hand…defending our country against the bad guys who want to DESTROY US and OUR way of life. You’ve been in the Senate, hanging out with the ‘bleeding hearts’ for TOO LONG, IMHO.

    The Bible asserts; “God created man…He created them male and female.” Sexual perversion is an affront to our Creator and it’s about time that a national hero, President Trump, spoke up. Mr. Hatch is like the naked king who refused to admit his ignorance as he shamelessly paraded himself in the nude before the boys and girls and adults of his kingdom. Now we have a president with God given common sense. Americans should stand up with him and be counted as Judeao-Christian morality Amercans. Thank you Mr. President for flushing the toilet on this vile issue. As long as the Hatchites can get highly paid for making royal garments, they’ll run for reelection. “Impeach Hatch.”

    Vietnam vet to Senator: American young people are people too. When they go into the military they are expected to learn a lot and learn it fast. And it is not just their drill instructors or other trainers expecting them to learn….. their own life may depend on how well they learn to fight. They really do not have time to be discriminated against by the United States Congress. For the congress to force the military to adapt to living with homosexuals, transgenders, queers or any other discription of evil, dirty, disgusting sexual activity is a sin. It is a sin. If you forced that on me, I would help them die. If you would not keep them away from me, then I would thin their ranks. I will not do that of course, because I am nearly 80 and too old to be of use in the military, but if I were a young man, transgenders would find it unsafe around me. You seek to discriminate against the 99 percent instead of the 1 percent who are transgender. Who are filthy, dirty, evil and disgusting. I do not travel well anymore, so I will not set foot outside my door to voice my opposition to your selfish comments on the subject. Just the same, I dispise your position so much that I hope you die, and real soon.

    Military serve us. They defend our country and our interests. It’s a well known fact that we do little to serve them, whether before, during or after their service. Why should this group be the one exception? The cost of their six figure surgeries pales compared to the loss of morale, discipline, training, recovery time and deployment readiness. Even peace time would be unbearable sharing showers, tents, barracks, taking hours of sensitivity training which amounts to noting but immoral propaganda. It’s more than any decent American should be subjected to when he comes in with honorable intentions. War would be even worse. Why pander to those who have selfish interests and only want to be served by a bottomless account funded by tax payers.
