Supreme Court Allows Trump's Ban On Trans Troops To Go Ahead

The Supreme Court allowed President Donald Trump's restrictions on transgender troops to go into effect Tuesday.

The Justices have not yet ruled on the merits of the case but will allow the ban while the lower courts deliberate on it.

The four liberal justices on the Court objected to allowing the policy, which bans most transgender people from serving in the military, to go into effect.

The policy was first announced by President Trump in July 2017 via Twitter.
