Trans ban

When are Republican senators going to stand up to this bully?

President Trump not only tried to bully Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and others who do not adhere to his way, but now he also attacks the transgender community courageously serving in the military.

According to the CBO, and the Department of Defense’s own study, military medical expenditure — including transgender — is $8.4 million a year.

Meanwhile, a single trip to President Trump’s own private golf course, Mar-a-Lago, is $3.6 million.

I think I would want my taxpayer funds going to the brave men and women serving in the military, rather than a draft dodger who just wants to play golf and enrich himself.

Republicans: It’s time to stand up and do what is right for the country, not for your ideology.
