President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday via Twitter that the U.S. military would no longer “accept or allow” transgender people.

“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 victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you,” wrote the president in three tweets early Wednesday.

While many civil rights organizations and veterans panned the move, the accounts of some right-wing Twitter supported the president.

Ann Colter retweeted this one:

Former Blaze host Tomi Lahren felt that taxpayers shouldn't cover the cost of transgender military health care.

And other conservatives spoke out in support of the announcement as well:

The move is a reversal of a 2016 decision by President Barack Obama that allowed current transgender soldiers to serve openly and set up a deadline for onboarding new transgender service members. The deadline was pushed back and it appears as if Trump's pronouncement will end it.

It is not know how many transgender service members there are currently, but estimates run from 1,320 to over 15,000 from studies by think tanks and civil rights organizations.

Congress is currently debating a $700 billion spending bill to fund the military and several conservatives want language in the bill barring the Pentagon from paying for gender reassignment procedures.

In spite of vocal advocates of Trump's ban, other Republicans and conservatives panned the move. Republican transgender celebrity Caitlyn Jenner hit on Trump's hypocrisy.

Republican and veteran Sen. John McCain said that making the policy announcement via Twitter was irresponsible.

Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch pushed back on the announcement as well.
