As a January 1 deadline approaches for the military to start accepting transgender servants under an Obama-era directive, the Trump administration has been to court looking for possible options to prolong the ban motivating it by the necessity of staff training about transgender issues. “There are considerable requirements associated with implementing this significant and complex policy change. Those personnel directly responsible for execution number in the tens of thousands and are geographically dispersed across the United States. Specifically, implementation of a new accession policy necessitates preparation, training, and communication to ensure those responsible for application of the accession standards are thoroughly versed in the policy and its implementation procedures,” the complaint reads. However, the claim has been rejected by three military chiefs that insist that there will be no difficulties in educating the staff about gender identity issues.
