Statement on President Donald Trump’s Tweets Regarding Transgender Servicemembers: Delete Your Account

DES MOINES, IOWA (July 26, 2017)- Today, Iowa’s leading LGBTQ organization issued the following statement in response President Donald Trump’s misinformed and mean-spirited tweets regarding transgender servicemembers.

Iowa Safe Schools Executive Director, Nate Monson, who is available for interviews, released the following statement:

“Transgender servicemembers have always been a part of the United States Military.  President Trump’s tweets disparage and demean the sacrifices transgender servicemembers have made for our country.  The message that transgender youth cannot serve their country is wrong.  No one should be denied the ability to serve their country regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, or gender identity. President Trump should delete his account and stop bullying the transgender community.”
