Trump's transgender military ban - what do you reckon.

I'm not comfortable with it myself, but put that down to my age.

What do others here think, as bizarrely the US spends more on Viagra than they do on medical support for transgenders.

"Some US media outlets have questioned the spending justification. The Washington Post drew attention to an analysis that the US military spends almost $42m (£32m) a year on the erectile dysfunction medication Viagra - several times the total estimated cost of transgender medical support".

It makes no difference to me, besides once someone replaces Trump I am pretty sure a lot of his work will be undone ( lets hope it ain't Hillary though )

Are we surprised by anything Drumpf does now? 

 

The man's a disgrace. About time America put an end to him and his equally dispicable family....

@DaveyH he may be a disgrace when it comes to looking after health etc but you have to admit he's a bit more determined than Obama when it comes to the middle east and the crumbling west. I don't agree with a lot of the stuff he does but some of it I do agree with.

Yes I do find his tweets a bit odd but at the same time he is reaching out to his followers and keeping them in the loop. You can't fault him in that respect as he is literally staying in touch. Some other presidents would only do prepared speeches and news bulletins.

Wacky ideas yes but then Alexander Bell was supposed to be crazy when he unveiled the telephone. Without his wacky invention your views on this forum wouldn't exist. Just because someone appears wacky to your sense of logic does not mean that they are crazy, it just means they think differently. Trump has afterall been very strategic and got himself into the POTUS position which is more than anyone else who slates him has managed to do.

@Strat The final three letters in the epithet are wasted surely!

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

@Luzern

Want to even half understand the nasty and manipulative world of American politics and how Trump got elected, then watch this and despair - you as well @7up

PS. Interesting tweet from @TomiLahren - "Pres Trump dedicated to putting radical Muslims in graves whereas Pres Obama was dedicated to putting men in the ladies room"

Re: Trump's transgender military ban - what do you reckon.

I'm not keep on debating politics at the best of times but i'm less keen on debating the ins and outs of Donald Trump.

I can't say I really like the guy but sometimes he does suprise me - eg Charlie Gard citizenship.

At the end of the day its a different country. The citizens there voted how they wanted (allegedly) and there's not much that we can do about it.

JK Rowling's response was better...

 

Truly, whom amongst us can forget Trump ordering the killing of bin Laden? Or Obama bragging about barging in on naked beauty contestants?

I think Peter Brookes sums it up well in today's Times cartoon

Debating is less harmful than actually getting involved with his ins and outs, I'd think.Crazy3

Actually this tweet from a Veteran Group sums it up nicely...
