President Donald Trump signs memo banning transgender recruits from US military
26 August 2017 Current Affairs: President Donald Trump directed the Pentagon to declare an indefinite ban on transgender individuals joining the military, but he appeared to leave open the possibility of allowing some already in uniform to remain in the military.

The Obama administration in June 2016 changed longstanding policy declaring that troops could serve openly as transgender individuals. 

Around 2,500 transgender personnel may be serving on active duty, and 1,500 in the reserves.
