Cher, Hillary Clinton Blast Trump's Trans Military Ban

Cher, Hillary Clinton Blast Trump's Trans Military Ban

Many public figures tweeted their outrage as the discriminatory ban went into effect.

The transgender military ban imposed by President Donald Trump went into effect Friday, ending the careers of over 13,000 trans service members.

In response, many public figures from the worlds of politics, entertainment, and activism took to social media to blast the discriminatory policy.

Chief among them was Hillary Clinton, Trump's challenger in the 2016 presidential election. "The administration's ban on transgender servicemembers begins today. It is abhorrent. Every American should be able to serve their country, and I can't believe we're still debating that in 2019. We have to reverse this as soon as we can."

Cher, one of the LGBTQ community's greatest allies, also took to Twitter to express her heartbreak about the ban, which she saw as "another example of Trump pandering to his rightwing base."
