Democratic presidential hopeful Cory Booker has pledged he would reverse President Donald Trump’s transgender ban in the military if elected president.

The New Jersey senator spoke to a crowd of over 300 voters in Davenport answering a question from a woman identifying herself as transgender about how he would protect LGBTQ rights. 

“When I am president of the United States, right away I will end this ridiculous, insulting, un-American ban on transgender Americans serving in the military,” Booker said.

The Democratic white house hopeful promised to undo a handful of Trump Administration policies if he was elected president.

In January, The Supreme Court granted the Trump administration the power to start enforcing its policy restricting transgender people from serving in the military.

But justices appointed by Democratic presidents voted to deny the Trump administration’s application to halt the lower court rulings, these included Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.

Back in 2017, Donald Trump Tweeted that transgender troops would not be permitted to serve in the military before issuing an order banning most transgender people from military service.

President Barack Obama's administration to allow transgender people to serve openly has now been reversed by Trump.

In November, a protestor confronted booker about an alleged "groping" incident that took place in high school.

While in college, the Congressman wrote about the sexual misconduct that took place when he was 15.

The column that he penned, in which he confessed to groping a girl's breast, has recently reemerged after the virtue-signaling politician was publically critical of Justice Kavanaugh in the face of sexual assault accusations.
