Biden repeals Trump-era ban on transgender military service

President Joe Biden on Monday lifted the ban on transgender troops serving in the military and reset an order from former President Donald Trump that shocked Pentagon leaders and created years of legal trouble for the government.

The policy change, Biden’s latest move to overturn Trump’s orders, was announced by the White House ahead of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin being sworn in.

The move reinstates an Obama-era policy that made open transgender service possible.
