Donald Trump has just been asked to face-off by a retired Navy SEAL, later turned transgender. The reason for the duel is due to Trump’s latest decision to prevent transgender people from serving the military.
“Let’s meet face to face and you tell me I’m not worthy,” Kristin Beck noted. “Transgender doesn’t matter. Do your service.”
As far as service goes, Beck served 20 years in the Navy SEALs before she turned to transgender. She worked with SEAL Teams 1, 5 and Team 6 as well. Her service was mostly done in Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
The veteran was also awarded multiple decorations. She also received the Purple Heart for courage.
“I was defending individual liberty,” Beck said. “I defended for Republicans. I defended for Democrats. I defended for everyone.”
This came after Trump announced the following:
“After consultation with my generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military,” Trump said in a series of tweets.
“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail,” the president said.
Beck, however, spoke about her medical expenses as a transgender:
“You’re talking about .000001% of the military budget,” Beck said.
“They care more about the airplane or the tank than they care about people,” Beck said. “They don’t care about people. They don’t care about human beings.”
Beck pointed out that presidents who strip off the transgenders’ privilege to serve the country are simply incompetent.
“A very professional unit with great leadership wouldn’t have a problem,” Beck said. “I can have a Muslim serving right beside Jerry Falwell, and we’re not going to have a problem. It’s a leadership issue, not a transgender issue.”
What do you think about this? Should Trump take on the challenge?
