Trump’s Own General Mattis Just Defied Him In A Massive Way Nobody Saw Coming

Defense Secretary Mattis just went around Trump’s ridiculous transgender order in an extremely creative way.

Background:

In a series of tweets, Trump said that he would not be allowing the military to fund transgender surgery and medical services due to “costs.”

“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 U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.”

He’s since been blasted by many people, including a transgender former Navy Seal.
“Let’s meet face to face and you tell me I’m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a 20-year veteran of the Navy SEALs. “Transgender doesn’t matter. Do your service.”

“Being transgender doesn’t affect anyone else,” Beck said. “We are liberty’s light. If you can’t defend that for everyone that’s an American citizen, that’s not right. I was defending individual liberty,” she said. “I defended for Republicans. I defended for Democrats. I defended for everyone.”

They care more about the airplane or the tank than they care about people,” Beck said. “They don’t care about people. They don’t care about human beings.”

The Coast Guard has also refused to stay silent in the wake of this move by Trump. Coast Guard officials made a point to reach out personally to members of their forces who are transgender to express their support of them.

“The first thing we did is we reached out to all 13 members of the Coast Guard who have come out” as transgender, Commandant Adm. Zukunft announced.
Funny enough, however, it doesn’t seem that Trump has all the support that he claims to have from his ever-emptying cabinet.

What’s Happening Now:

Defense Secretary Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis has announced that transgender troops will still be able to serve in the armed forces pending the results of a study.

“Once the panel reports its recommendations and following my consultation with the secretary of Homeland Security, I will provide my advice to the president concerning implementation of his policy direction,” Mattis said in the statement on Tuesday.

“In the interim, current policy with respect to currently serving members will remain in place.”

Well, it’s not a total victory, but it’s something. At least those who are proudly serving their country are allowed to continue.
Hopefully “Mad Dog” will be easier to reason with than “Mad Man” Trump.
