A Top Colonel Just Responded To Trump’s Transgender Ban By Calling Out His Entire Family

Trump’s decision to ban transgender Americans from serving in the U.S. Armed Forces was met with swift criticism from both sides of the aisle. But none was as cutting as this response from a 25-year veteran of the Air Force, Colonel Morris Davis.

Trump’s dismal military record includes five deferments during Vietnam, including four for education and one for medical. For his medical deferment, Trump cited “bone spurs,” which, luckily for him, were only “temporary.” How convenient.

To make matters worse, Trump has a long history of launching attacks on our servicemen and women. During the campaign, Trump publicly criticized a gold star family, suggesting that the mother of a slain Muslim-American soldier was not “allowed” to speak as she stood beside her husband on stage at the Democratic National Convention. Khizr Khan, the soldier’s father, issued a blistering rebuke, saying, “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”

Trump’s draconian move comes on the 69th anniversary, to the day, of President Harry Truman desegregating the United States military. Truman called for “equality of treatment and opportunity,” without regard to race, color, religion, or even national origin, but rather “merit and fitness” being the sole qualifications to defend our freedoms. Nearly 11,000 transgender Americans currently serve in the Armed Forces.

While Trump touts his “patriotism,” he has done nothing but curb the rights of actual patriots. America is grateful for the thousands of transgender servicemen and women defending our freedom while cowards, like those in the Trump family, refuse to do so.

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
