In a series of morning Tweets, President Trump announced that transgender people are banned from the military. No matter how you feel about LGBTQ, here is what is wrong with Trump’s doing this:
- First of all, no ONE PERSON should have the authority to make decisions of military policy. We are still a democratic republic and not ruled by a king or tyrant.
- The fact that Congress ceded their authority to the Executive opened the door wide open for this to happen.
- Trump is using social media to create policy. How long are members of his own party in Congress going to cower in fear?
- If Trump succeeds in getting away with banning members of the LGBTQ community, who’s next? Consider the history of tyrants and you will understand that tyrants start with one group and continue until no one is left.
It is time for Congress to do its job and take back its power as a co-equal branch of government. Republicans, Democrats, Independents, everyone in Congress must join together now, for the sake of the Country!
