Twitter blasted draft-dodger Donald Trump over his ban on transgender people in the U.S. military in a series of tweets that have left leaders at the Pentagon scrambling on how to deal with the fall out.

Trump issued a statement in three tweets:  “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming …victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted: “69 days ago, President Truman desegregated the US military. This morning @POTUS turned anti-trans prejudice into policy.

She continued:  “@RealDonaldTrump’s decision to ban transgender Americans from the military is a vile attack on brave individuals defending our country.”

In other words, on the day President Truman ended discrimination, Donald Trump commemorates it by instituting new discrimination measures. Vile indeed.
