Tillerson Condemns Transgender Violence As Trump Adm. Works On Military Ban

The Hill reports:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson released a statement marking Monday Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Tillerson’s statement condemned the violence against transgender individuals, saying that they “should not be subjected to violence or discrimination.”

The Hill article goes on to say,
Trump tweeted in July that he would ban transgender people from serving in the military, signing a memo in August that prevented transgender individuals from enlisting, and blocked the use of federal funds to pay for gender reassignment surgery for troops. A federal court partially blocked the ban in October.
