President Donald Trump's decision to ban transgender individuals from serving in the US armed forces was a military decision, and the White House will have to work with the Pentagon to decide how to implement the policy, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

"Implementation of the policy is going to be something that the White House and the Department of Defense have to work together to lawfully determine and ... I would imagine the Department of Defense will be the lead on that," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told a briefing.
