New press secretary reads Trump fan mail at press briefing

Shinn is a defense lawyer outside of Denver, Colorado, and co-founder of the Colorado Name Change Project, which provides pro-bono legal services for transgender men and women who want to change their names and gender designations.

She said it's a new routine that will happen "every once in a while".

When a reporter shouted a question about the issue after the president's speech, Trump stood stone-faced and did not answer, but called the reporter "rude".

"I would imagine the Department of Defense would be the lead on that", Sanders said, at one point threatening to end the briefing as she was peppered with questions about the subject. "And I think that using the expense of medical treatment as an excuse is bad".

Wednesday was a "two for the price of one" day for conservative supporters of Donald Trump.

The ban "is blatant discrimination and plays on the kind of hate and bigotry that we saw during his campaign and throughout his presidency", Rick Zbur, executive director of Equality California, said in a statement.

Incoming White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would not say on Thursday if the president still has confidence in his chief of staff, Reince Priebus.

"A Rand Corp. study estimated that there are between 2,500 and 7,000 transgender service members on active duty and an additional 1,500 to 4,000 in the reserves". The study past year by RAND Corp. also concluded that the impact on military readiness would be minimal; 18 other nations allow transgender people to serve. Kamala Harris calling it "discriminatory, wrong and un- American".

President Trump, in his multiple-tweet announcement, cited transition-related surgery as "tremendous", which is false, but a Trump administration official admitted to Axios that the decision to ban all transgender service members is totally political. There are different estimates of Trump's wealth out there, but they're just that - estimates. With yesterday's health care vote?

Dylan: "I don't know why people don't like you". I like you so much I had a birthday about you.

He supported the effort to ban the Pentagon from using taxpayer money to cover medical costs of transgender medical procedures.

"But now they are not good enough to be who they are", Borden said.

Sanders later shared a copy of the handwritten note, complete with misspellings, on Twitter. "Will you read letters from him also?" a Twitter user said. "I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs", Trump tweeted about opponent Hillary Clinton on June 14, 2016.

Amusing that a kid who can't spell for shit knows what a hyphen is or where to use it.
