Trump tweet on transgendersThe only way for President Donald Trump to push back as commander and chief is to appoint federal judges who follow the U.S. Constitution, says a retired U.S. Army general.

Trump ordered the Pentagon to reverse an Obama-era policy that allows open transgender recruits in the U.S. armed forces but federal judges, responding to a lawsuit, have ordered the original policy to stand despite legal fights from the new administration.

"He's going to have to load the benches with people that will stand on the Constitution," says Boykin, "and not on their political agenda."

Trump, in fact, has set a White House record for appeals court appointments in a president's first year in office after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell kept up a steady pace over the previous two months. 

Asked about the pro-LGBT policies enacted by Barack Obama, Boykin says those policies will likely remain because Congress will be too afraid to return to the Clinton-era "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy.  

"Look, it never should have been done in the first place," he observes. "But this is the consequence of an election and don't think you can reverse that and turn it back."
