President Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military is going into effect.

Now, people who serve in the military must adhere to their birth sex, and people cannot be on hormones while serving.

President Trump tweeted two years ago stating that the inclusion of transgender people in the military will result in medical costs.

Some people are calling this policy a “don’t ask, don’t tell” sort of ruling, and some also say it will force transgender people to lie about their identification.
