  • Mr Trump made the statements over a series of three tweets 'after consultation with military experts'

  • Stonewall's Head of Trans Inclusion Rebecca Stinson says comments are outrageous and inaccurate 

 ‘Donald Trump’s latest tweets are outrageous and a wakeup call to anyone in the LGBT community who thought their rights were safe.

‘Donald Trump’s latest tweets are outrageous and a wakeup call to anyone in the LGBT community who thought their rights were safe. 

Not only are they inaccurate, they also serve to demonise trans people. With these statements, the President of the United States has sent a clear message -  his administration will not treat trans people equally. We’re now reaching out to LGBT activists and organisations in the US to offer support.’
