Donald Trump took questions from the press today at his Bedminster, NJ golf club where he’s spending a vacation.
Asked about his planned ban on transgender military service, Trump said:
“I have great respect for the community. I think I’ve had great support, or I’ve had great support from that community. I got a lot of votes. But the transgender, the military’s working on it now. It’s been a very difficult situation and I think I’m doing a lot of people a favor by coming out and just saying it. As you know, it’s been a very complicated issue for the military, it’s been a very confusing issue for the military, and I think I’m doing the military a great favor.”
