Trump's 'cruel' transgender ban causes Twitter fury

In a move that has created shockwaves across the world, US President Donald Trump has taken the questionable step of banning transgender people from the military.

Trump has claimed the reasoning behind this ban is down to the “disruption” they would cause, announcing the legislature via his most favourite of mediums – Twitter. The move reverses Obama’s policy which loosened the restrictions on transgender people to serve in the US armed forces. A Rand Corporation study found that there are approximately 1,320 to 6,630 transgender people serving in the US military.
