MILITARY/TRANSGENDER/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The largest association of doctors in the United States is arguing that there is ‘no medically valid reason’ to bar transgender individuals from serving in the military, countering President Donald Trump’s policy issued in March…The letter, signed by AMA CEO James Madara, argues that Mattis’ recommendations to the President ‘mischaracterized and rejected the wide body of peer-reviewed research on the effectiveness of transgender medical care.’ The letter was first reported by Politico. Trump initially tweeted back in July his intentions to reinstate a ban on transgender individuals from serving in the US armed forces. He signed a presidential memorandum a month later reversing the Obama-era rule that allowed transgender people to serve and left Mattis to draw up a plan for implementation. Transgender troops took the policy to court, which halted its implementation.”
