Jim Mattis would advise to keep trans troops


The Secretary of Defense, Jim Mattis, is expected to give guidance to the White House not to remove those trans officers that are already serving. Two US officials told the Washington Post that it is likely Mattis will break away from the president’s wishes and won’t forbid trans people to serve. Dana White, a spokesperson for Mattis, said on Thursday that the secretary had missed the deadline as he did not want to make this issue more complicated.“This is a complex issue, and the secretary is taking his time to consider the information he’s been given. It’s an important issues, and again, he sees all of his decisions through the lens of lethality,” White said.
