Sports Media Responds To Donald Trump's Ban On Transgenders In The Military

Many in sports media have reacted to President Trump's ban on transgenders in the military.

President Donald Trump announced Wednesday morning, in a series of tweets, that transgendered individuals will no longer be able to serve in the military. Trump, stating that he consulted with generals and military experts, cited the burden of "tremendous medical costs and disruption" that transgenders in the military would entail.

Here are the tweets, if you've somehow missed them:

The sports media world, which certainly leans liberal, has come out in full force against Trump's decision. Jay Williams, Michelle Beadle, Jemele Hill and Seth Davis are just a few of many who have voiced their opinions on the matter.

Trump's decision will certainly spark a national debate. Expect many to have a hard time sticking to sports this week.
