Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi Called The Trump Administration’s Latest Brief Asking The Supreme Court To Hear Cases On The Administration’s Transgender Military Policy “cowardly” And “disgusting.”

“This latest memorandum is the same cowardly, disgusting ban the President announced last summer. No one with the strength and bravery to serve in the U.S. military should be turned away because of who they are,” she said in a statement.
