Trump says he is 'doing military a great favour' with transgender troop ban

Trump says he is 'doing military a great favour' with transgender troop banBanning transgender people from serving in the American military would be “doing the military a great favour,” Donald Trump has said – a statement undercut by resistance to the proposal from current and former servicemembers. Mr Trump was seeking to defend his controversial prohibition on transgender troops, which he announced on Twitter to the reported surprise of military officials. After claiming to enjoy “great support from that community,” an apparent reference to transgender Americans, Mr Trump framed the proposal as a gift to the armed forces.

Trump attacks Mitch McConnell for second day over Senate health policy failure

Trump attacks Mitch McConnell for second day over Senate health policy failureBy James Oliphant BEDMINSTER, N.J. (Reuters) – President Donald Trump attacked his own party’s Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, for a second day on Thursday, complaining from the steps of his private New Jersey golf club about Republicans’ failure to repeal and replace Obamacare. In the aftermath of last month’s collapse in the Senate of a years-long Republican campaign to gut the 2010 Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare, Trump has berated McConnell and other Republican senators, urging them to return to the divisive issue of reforming the U.S. healthcare insurance system. Many senators, including McConnell, have been making the case that it is time to move on to other policies, such as tax reform and improving infrastructure.
