The Pentagon has said it won’t stop transgender people from enlisting in the military despite President Donald Trump’s earlier aversion to the idea.

Back in July, Trump announced he had banned anyone from the transgender community from signing up for the army, citing ‘tremendous medical costs and disruption.’

He wrote in a tweet:

After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the US military.
