"Everyone should be able to serve."
The leaders in charge of two of the world’s most popular social media platforms have weighed in on President Donald Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from all branches of the U.S. military.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was among the first major business leaders to publicly denounce the ban. “Everyone should be able to serve their country — no matter who they are,” he wrote Wednesday on Facebook. Zuckerberg’s message received more than 111,000 likes and was shared more than 4,000 times as of Wednesday afternoon.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey soon followed suit, writing in a tweet: “Discrimination in any form is wrong for all of us #LetThemServe.”
