Unit Cohesion?

On the 69thanniversary of Truman ending segregation in the military, Trump bans transgender individuals from serving in the military.

Serving transgender members of the military are unaware of any problems that need to be solved.

Some wonder if it’s about a recent Tucker Carlson show linking trans people with child abuse, while others wonder if it was caused by a split in the House Republican caucus over medical services for trans members of the military.

If Trump had discussed this with the military, the Pentagon wouldn’t have been so totally unprepared to deal with questions from the media. This was proclaimed in a tweet, and has no real power until it shows up as an executive order, but has already reduced readiness and disturbed unit cohesion over an issue that people assumed had been settled.
