So is it safe to assume your stance is that people who are transgender are incapable of contributing to our combat capability? Are they subhumans or something? I don't get your point here, please clarify.

He is supported by the voters who elected him. This is why we have elections, to determine who formulates policy. In the opinions of the voters who elected him, his policies benefit the country. That is what elected officials are supposed to do, abide by the wishes of their constituents.
