Hello! I am a freshman in highschool and I want to have a bigger impact on this country, as it is my right. The recent ban made by President Trump on not allowing transgender people to serve in the military is flawed and non-American. Having transgender people serve in the military was causing “tremendous medical costs and disruption”, according to President Trump. In actuality, transgender medical attention only costs the military $8.4M*. Now let’s use our common sense and compare it to the amount of money the military has to spend on erectile disfunction pills ($84.24M)* and Viagra prescriptions ($41.6M)*. We must stop the few people who have immense power to negativly impact the lives of 1.4 million people. Help me achieve that goal! Thanks!
