Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s twitter announcement banning transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.

“The President’s discriminatory statements released this morning are disgusting. It’s startling he would make our country less safe by recklessly preventing a group of patriots from continuing to serve their country. I proudly stand behind our transgender community as they are cowardly assaulted by the President from his social media account.”
