Caitlyn Jenner, Laverne Cox and more speak out on Donald Trump's transgender military ban

Little Hands Bish (a.k.a orange agent Donald Trump) announced earlier today (July 26) that he plans to reinstate a ban on transgender individuals from serving "in any capacity" in the U.S. armed forces.

The decision reversed a policy initially approved by the Defense Department under President Barack Obama, which was still under final review, that would allow transgender individuals to openly serve in the military.

Little Hands Bish fired off a series of tweets announcing the news:

Two huge influences in the transgender community, Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox and Kardashian star Caitlyn Jenner, both spoke out against the military ban. 

 "There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the U.S. military fighting for all of us," Jenner tweeted. "What happened to your promise to fight for them?" 

Caitlyn referenced a tweet Trump wrote as a candidate for president in which he promised to fight for LGBTQ people.
