(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Cory Booker sent out a Tweet on Saturday night that transgenders who serve in the U.S. military are heroes and that President Donald Trump’s policy of banning transgenders from the military is a national security threat.

Booker’s Tweet was linked to a Tweet by the Human Rights Campaign that featured a video of transgender former service members speaking about their experiences in the military.

“Transgender servicemembers are heroes, just like all other servicemembers risking their lives for their country,” Booker said in his Tweet.

“President Trump’s effort to ban them doesn’t just fly in the face of our collective values—it’s a national security threat,” Booker said.

The Human Rights Campaign video is attached to an HRC Tweet that features the quote: “I had a great relationship with my soldiers and peers & my seniors & after coming out none of that changed because what they valued was my contribution to the mission, not my gender.”
