Donald Trump announces ban on transgender people from serving in US military

In a series of tweets, the American president announced on Wednesday that transgender people could no longer join the military.

“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” Trump tweeted.

“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you,” he said.

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly showed his support for LGBT individuals.



This isn’t the first measure regarding transgender people that he announces since he joined the White House in January.

The Republican president abrogated in February the measures taken by his predecessor Barack Obama to allow, for example, transgender people to go to the bathrooms of their choice.

The decision has raised a wave of protests in the United States, notably in Times Square, New York.

Chris Isaak to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol?

The rumors are fueled by the fact that he has met twice with those of Fox.

Chris Isaak, along with music, has appeared over the years in numerous television series such as “Eastwick”, “Cold Case”, “Smallville” and in his own television show, “Chris Isaak Show”. Another singer, Harry Connick Jr., was also considered.

Even rocker Bret Michaels would like the role of judge for “American Idol”, even making lobby last week in an interview for Headline News (“I would love to do it, I would really bring it to the table”, Michaels told Joy Behar). Some sources, however, say that Michaels doesn’t have any chances in the race.

In addition, Donald Trump lobbied to replace Simon Cowell, despite his long association with NBC as a producer and judge of “The Apprentice”.

While Fox insisted that no decision is imminent, network entertainment president Peter Rice said that until the beginning of September, the new judge will join the Caravan.

They want the “American Idol” judge to be similar to “X Factor” Simon Cowell. In many ways, Fox tries to realize who is the right “piece”, a delicate process, considering the long-term tension between Cowell and the executive producer of “American Idol, Simon Fuller.

Will Lindsay Lohan appear on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice ?

“Donald approached Lindsay about being on Celebrity Apprentice, so we’ll see where it goes. I think it’s a great idea for her, but Lindsay has two movies coming up so I don’t know if Lindsay has time. It may conflict with her schedule”, said Lohan’s mom Dina.

Moreover, Lindsay, 23, will meet Donald Trump this week to discuss the possibility of appearing on Celebrity Apprentice .

Dina adds : “Donald is a very good friend of the family and he’s had our back for years. He’s a great dad, and he would do anything to help us.”
