President Joe Biden has repealed former President Trump’s ban on transgender military members.

According to the White House, Biden signed an executive order that set the policy for all Americans who are qualified to serve in the Armed Forces of the United States to be able to serve.

“President Biden believes that gender identity should not be a bar to military service and that America’s strength is found in its diversity,” the White House said in a media release.

Back in 2017, Trump announced that transgender individuals would not be allowed to serve in any sort of capacity in the military.

“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming” Trump wrote in a tweet.
