ANALYSIS: Annual Military Healthcare For Trans Troops Is Equal To Just Four Of Trump’s Trips To Mar-A-Lago

USA Today reports:

A report for the Pentagon last year found that transition-related care would cost between about $2.4 and $8.4 million per year — less than 0.14% of the military’s medical budget. That’s roughly the cost of four of Trump’s trips to Mar-A-Lago, GQ noted, even using a conservative estimate of $2 million per trip. And it’s way less than the $84 million spent on Viagra and similar meds by the Department of Defense in 2014, as others also said.  It was, as Sen. John McCain noted, “yet another example of why major policy announcements should not be made via Twitter.”
