Angry Protesters Storm US White House after Trump Bans Transgender People From The Military


Hundreds of angry protesters took to the streets of New York City, Washington, DC, and San Francisco on Wednesday night after President Donald Trump announced his shocking ban on transgender people serving in the armed forces, calling the cost of transgender healthcare in the military as a 'burden'.

Demonstrators waved pink and blue flags and held signs bearing slogans: 'Trans lives are not a burden.' They could be heard chanting: 'Stand up! Fight back!'

Crowds swarmed the famed US Army Recruitment center in Times Square with 'resist' and 'rise up' signs in a show of defiance against the president's announcement.

Others marched on foot outside the White House bearing signs which read 'we're here, we're queer, we hate the f****** president'.

Transgender veterans made direct appeals to the president to reconsider the controversial move.
