White House unsure if trans troops will get boot under Trump policy

White House unsure if trans troops will get boot under Trump policy

Only two other women have held the title of White House press secretary - Dana Perino under President George W. Bush, and Dee Dee Myers under President Bill Clinton.

Emergency rally in front of the White House on Wednesday evening.

Cain, 67, isn't the only Journey member with a White House connection. "I would imagine the Department of Defense will be the lead on that".

Sanders shrugged aside the latest palace intrigue story, suggesting that President Donald Trump was not upset by the recent developments. Trump's announcement was reportedly a big surprise to the Pentagon; Defense Secretary James Mattis is now on vacation.

"Why is Scaramucci calling into CNN for 30 minutes and talking about freaking White House intrigue?" the adviser said.

When President Trump got online this morning and tweeted that transgender troops will no longer be allowed in the US military, it caught the Pentagon and many GOP lawmakers by surprise.

Trump's tweets did not say what would happen to transgender troops now in the ranks.

The Marine said Imran wanted the hard drives back so desperately that he threatened to sue the renter for stealing them. "Mr. Capitol Police and the FBI on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission and stole equipment.

Republicans on Capitol Hill are having difficulty responding because the Pentagon is still trying to explain the actual policy and how it would be implemented.

According to the report, a spending bill full of campaign promises, including border wall funding, was under threat of becoming derailed because some "defense hawk" Congressional members wanted to ban military-funded sex reassignment operations.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler, whose amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) banning funding for transgender surgeries was defeated earlier this month with the help of 23 liberal Republicans who sided with Democrats, was understandably thrilled. "Other brothers can fight with each other and get along". But leadership rejected that idea. The president's discriminatory decision harms our military readiness for our volunteer-based military. "Dylan, I'm not sure, but I know it's a lot", Sanders said in response.

Florida Rep. Tom Rooney, who served in the Army in the JAG Corps, admitted he didn't know what the administration policy announcement was because he missed the tweets. He's citing "tremendous medical costs and disruption". The first six minutes of Wednesday's briefing were an infomercial for the president, carried live on every cable news channel. Even though Politico reviewed this document by simply requesting it through the proper channels, Scaramucci fired off a tweet labeling its release a "leak" and "a felony" and adding Priebus's Twitter handle to the end of the message - which many interpreted as Scaramucci publicly blaming his archrival.

But things may be different in the Senate, where Sen.

But with Scaramucci publicly prodding Priebus - and with no guarantee that the administration will succeed in its ongoing efforts to pass a health care overhaul - it may be hard for Priebus to last longer in his role than a similarly beset chief of staff who was sacked, Samuel Skinner who served under George H.W. Bush.
