WASHINGTON, (BM) – During his first year as president, Donald Trump issued a decree banning people who identified themselves as transgender from serving in the U.S. military. New U.S. President Joe Biden has plans to change that.
According to the Associated Press, Biden is preparing a decree to lift the ban imposed years ago by Trump. In this way, anyone fit for military service will be able to apply and be a soldier, regardless of gender.
Biden’s idea of allowing transgender people to serve in the military was already supported by the new U.S. Secretary of Defense, General Lloyd Austin. “I support the president’s plan to lift the ban. If you are fit, qualified for service, and able to maintain standards, you should be allowed to serve,” Austin said. He made the remarks during a Senate hearing last week.
The news comes as a confirmation of Ron Klein. Klein is now Biden’s chief of staff. Some time ago, Ron Klein issued a similar note outlining the plan of the new U.S. president. Justice and support for colored and other minorities were, in general, the content of the notice.
When he took office, U.S. President Biden promised Americans equal rights for everyone. This move is proof that in his first week as president, Joe Biden will revise many of Trump’s previous decrees in an attempt to destroy the 45th president’s legacy. An example of this is Joe Biden’s latest laws allowing transgender men to compete in women’s competitions.
