Trump Drops Challenge to Transgender Enlistment

Transgender individuals can openly sign up for military service for the first time starting Jan. 1 after the Trump administration announced Friday it will no longer challenge the enlistments.

Two federal appeals courts last week rejected the administration’s request to put on hold orders by lower court judges that would require the military to begin accepting transgender recruits on Jan. 1. The administration will not challenge those rulings, Reuters reported that a Justice Department official said.
