What The Heck Is Going On?

This Wednesday morning Trump tweeted that he was going to ban trans people from serving in the military. He said it was after a discussion with his generals.

All hell broke loose.

Now we learn that no military personnel knew anything about it, not even the Secretary of Defense, so who did he talk to?

The Joint Chiefs of Staff, including chairman General Joseph Dunford knew anything about it, so who did he talk to?

No one in Congress knew anything about it, so who did he talk to?

He claimed in his tweet that it cost too much for our healthcare but from the Rand study we learn that was not true.

It is my belief that if he did talk about it he only talked to his staff or some retired members of the military.

During the Obama administration they conducted research for over a year, they looked into all the possible ramifications of allowing us to serve but it seems the Trump administration did it over corn beef on rye. It doesn’t look like he did any research at all.

Was this to distract the press from the Russian investigation?

That one tweet got the Joint Chiefs of Staff mad at him. Members of Congress in a show of bipartisan outrage over the tweet. Even congressional members who want to exclude us was upset over the way he did it.

This is not how presidents lead, they don’t blurt out a major national policy change in a 160 character tweet.

Trump does not show any Presidential leadership. Between the debacle at the Boy Scout Jamboree and tweet on us he has shown that he is a loose cannon that is running our nation.

Blame anti LGBTIQ underlings Vice President Pence and Steve Bannon as the people putting the idea in his head.
