July 26, 2017
Press Release

TROY, OH - Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Troy) released the following statement after learning of President Trump’s plan to make changes to the U.S. Military's policy towards transgender individuals.

“The Department of Defense should be focused on fighting and winning our nation’s wars, while also training and equipping the force that will do so into the future. The transgender debate is a distraction from this focus. With this announcement, along with the readiness and training review underway by Secretary Mattis, the Trump Administration is setting a clear expectation for that focus. I look forward to reviewing the details of these changes when they become available.”
