Biden to drop Trump’s military transgender ban

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is set to issue an executive order to reverse a Pentagon policy that largely bars transgender individuals from joining the military.

A person briefed on the decision tells The Associated Press that the White House could announce the move as early as Monday.

Biden’s newly confirmed defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, announced his support for overturning the ban during his confirmation hearing last week.
