washington - Transgenders are allowed to serve in the US Army from 1 January. Federal judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly disregarded the request of the Trump government to postpone any admission of transgender people to the military.
Trump wants to get rid of soldiers who do not identify with the sex they had at birth. In July he reversed a decision by his predecessor Barack Obama. Kollar-Kotelly blocked that regulation at the end of October. She wanted to wait for the outcome of the lawsuits that were filed against the measure. She considers the chances that banning transgender people is declared unconstitutional and thinks that they should be able to register as a recruit early next year.
Trump spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a reaction that the White House is going to investigate the legal possibilities to implement the government policy in this matter anyway.
