POLL Americans Side With Trump On Trans Ban

President Trump's skirmish with Attorney General Jeff Sessions was briefly sidelined in the news Wednesday when the former tweeted some major military news. He is reversing an Obama-era policy that allowed transgenders to serve openly in the military.

Lawmakers immediately condemned it as cruel and unusual. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said it is “discrimination, plain and simple.” A New York city council member called it “hate.” 


Others called Trump a hypocrite, referencing his remarks from last year where he pledged to serve the LGBTQ community.

Yet, the latest polls suggest Americans are not quite as outraged as their elected representatives. A Rasmussen Reports survey from June revealed that "just 23% of likely U.S. voters think the U.S. military's decision to allow openly transgender people to serve is good for the military."
