Press Release

Washington, D.C. -- Representative Hanabusa posted her reaction to President Trump's early morning Twitter announcement regarding transgenders in the military on her Facebook and Twitter pages this morning and summarizes her position as follows:

 

"The men and women who serve our country in the U.S. Armed Forces are patriots and the diversity that exists in our military strengthens us.  Unfortunately, President Trump has shown, once again, his inclination to exclude and discriminate.  I stand in opposition to President Trump's ill-conceived policy and I will continue to support a military open to all who wish to serve our country."
