General James Mattis has missed the deadline for advising on how to stop transgender people from joining the USA army forces. The legal back and forth was sparked by President Trump calling for a ban on trans troops on Twitter in the summer, and such an announcement caused at least 6 major legal battles. The Pentagon first said it was investigating how to implement the police in September 2017, with a deadline set of February 21. But when the deadline came the Pentagon admitted that no such advice has ever been passed. Pentagon officials refused to elaborate on the missed deadline, saying that discussions between Trump and Mattis are a private matter. It is now anticipated the deadline could be as late as March 23.
