Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has vowed to reverse the Trump administration’s policy on recruiting transgender people if she is elected president. 

Warren also took a step further and pledged to provide service members and veterans with “gender-affirming care,” which also includes “transition-related” surgery, which would be funded by the taxpayer.

Warren's plan devotes an entire section to the Trump administration’s transgender policy.

Warren wrote:

“Our national security community is weaker when LGBTQ+ Americans are excluded.

"I have opposed the Trump Administration’s shameful ban on transgender service members from the start – and I’ll reverse it on the first day of my presidency."

But Warren's claims that the Trump admin is outright “banning” transgender service members are not necessarily true.

After the Supreme Court granted the Trump administration the power to start enforcing its policy in January, it largely addressed individuals whose gender dysphoria requires expensive surgeries that “render them unable to serve for significant lengths of time.”

Last month, Warren declared that transgender prison inmates are "entitled" to receive taxpayer-funded gender assignment surgery.

Warren argued that the state should pay for incarcerated convicts to have sex-change operations, no matter the crime committed by the criminals.

Warren was responding to a question by CNN’s Chris Cuomo when she made the remarks.

Cuomo was asking Warren about her previous stance; when in 2012, she said that making American taxpayers pay for transgender inmates to get gender reassignment surgery was "wrong."

"Do you regret that?” asked Cuomo.

“Yup,” Warren responded.

“It was a bad answer [at the time]"

"I believe that everyone is entitled to medical care and medical care that they need and that includes people who are transgender who, um, it is time for them to have [transgender] surgery."
