President Donald Trump announced he will ban transgender people from serving in the military in any capacity, an abrupt reversal of an Obama administration decision which would have allowed them to serve openly.

The backlash was harsh and swift. One of the more prominent of Trump's detractors was Joseph Biden, our former vice president. He sent out the following message from his personal Twitter account:


Responses ran the gamut from sarcastic...


...to angry.



Others cheered.






Reportedly, Trump's decision to bar transgender individuals from military service came as a response to an internal House Republican fight over sex reassignment surgery which threatened funding for his border wall. White House sources told reporters that Trump's sudden decision "was, in part, a last-ditch attempt to save a House proposal full of his campaign promises that was on the verge of defeat."
