Donald Trump has built upon his disgraceful banning of transgender people from joining the US military, by banning well known robots in disguise Transformers just because they have 'trans' in their name.
Trump made the decision after discussing the feasibility of having robots that can also be lorries with his generals and Decepticons.
Trump said: "Donald Trump is announcing a ban, with immediate effect, of all Transformers from the military.
"When we're on the ground fighting Mexicans, gays and gay Mexicans, the last thing we need is the burden of something which is a Freightliner truck one minute, then a morally strong robot then next.
"We just can't have it."
Transformer Optimus Prime said: "I have military experience, martial arts expertise and I look great in Stars and Stripes.
"This is an absolutely disgraceful assault on the Transformer community."
Trump added: "I'm also banning VW Transporters, Transylvania and because I'm scared of spiders, transtulas."
