MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVY) — Judge Roy Moore released the following statement on President Trump's policy regarding transgender individuals in the military:
"I commend President Trump for putting our nation's military preparedness before political correctness. I look forward to working with him to strengthen our military so we remain feared by our enemies, respected by our allies, and loved by our people.
"As U.S. Senator, I will not stand by while the left uses the military for social experimentation. For America to be safe and free, our military leadership must be solely focused on maintaining the most disciplined, combat-ready force in the world. The United States Department of Defense must devote itself to the business of defending our country and preparing our troops for combat, not dealing with members’ misguided confusion over their God-given chromosomes."
