Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has accused President Donald Trump of using his ban on transgenders in the military as an excuse to "humiliate brave Americans."

In a Tuesday night tweet, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) said that President Trump’s transgender ban “is designed to humiliate brave Americans.”

“Trump’s trans ban is designed to humiliate brave Americans,” she posted on Twitter.

"It is deeply concerning that DOD officials appear to have given inaccurate testimony to Congress to justify a discriminatory policy.

"We must ensure that hate doesn’t dictate our national security,” Pelosi added.

To back up her claims that “DOD officials appear to have given inaccurate testimony to Congress,” Pelosi linked to a statement issued by a former secretary of the Navy, a former secretary of the Air Force and a former secretary of the Army.

The trio argues that having transgenders in the armed forces was a “success.”

“In seeking to justify President Trump’s wrong-headed ban on transgender service members at a congressional hearing last week, Defense Department officials made misleading claims,” the statement by former Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, former Secretary of the Air Force Deborah James Lee and former Secretary of the Army Eric Fanning read.

“Under inclusive policy that is currently in effect, transgender service members must meet exactly the same fitness and deployability standards as everybody else, but the witnesses ignored data confirming the success of that policy while making the untrue assertion that holding all service members to the same standards affords ‘special accommodations’ to transgender troops,” the statement continues.

“We agree with the 41 retired General and Flag Officers who affirmed their support for inclusive policy last week,” the officials said.

“There is no defensible rationale for imposing ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ on honorably serving transgender troops.”
