Trump’s Army Secretary Pick Mark Green Withdraws Name From Consideration


After growing criticism from leading Democrats, civil rights advocates and even some members of his own party, President Trump's pick for Army Secretary, Mark Green, has withdrawn his name from consideration.

"Tragically, my life of public service and my Christian beliefs have been mischaracterized and attacked by a few on the other side of the aisle for political gain," Green said in a statement sent to NBC News.

"While these false attacks have no bearing on the needs of the Army or my qualifications to serve, I believe it is critical to give the President the ability to move forward with his vision to restore our military to its rightful place in the world."

Green had previously offended both the LGBTQ community and Muslims with a number of comments and policy positions seen as offensive and discriminatory -- including comparing transgender people to ISIS militants.

"A man who was the lead sponsor of legislation to make it easier for businesses to discriminate against the LGBTQ community; opposes gay marriage, which is the law of the land; believes being transgender is a 'disease'; supports constricting access to legal contraception; and makes deeply troubling comments about Muslims is the wrong choice to lead America's Army," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement earlier this week.

That's about all you need to know about considering their integrity.

Unfortunately these people get too much attention around here.
