Laverne Cox Responds to Trump's Ban on Transgender Troops in the Military with Powerful Statement

Laverne Cox has released a statement about Donald Trump‘s new series of tweets declaring that transgender individuals will be banned from serving in the US Military.

“I have met many transgender Americans over the years who have served or are currently serving our country in the military. I have heard from them humiliating stories of being misgendered and experiencing various kinds of mistreatment when they are willing to put their lives on the line in ways many of us would never do including our current President,” Laverne told Entertainment Weekly. “This latest reversal of another Obama administration policy continues to send the message to trans Americans that our lives, our safety and service are less valuable and unwanted in this country, the country I love and hold so dear.”

Laverne is an advocate for LGBT rights and was a supporter of Hillary Clinton‘s during the election.

    Why didnt she call out the hatred and fear around Muslims even when Obama was in Office? This all started under Bush and Obama, Trump is literally the bi-product of 17 years of fear and hate and wars of choice.
