“This morning President Donald Trump tweets transgender people are a burden, costing the military too much in medical expenses.

Louisiana Congressman Ralph Abraham agrees, saying their service affects military readiness.

"If you start undergoing hormonal therapy, or certainly a surgical procedure, you are looking at 2 to 2.5 years of treatment. Well, guess what, now all of a sudden you are not a troop in any form or fashion ready to fight," says Congressman Ralph Abraham, R-LA 5th District.”
