“Once again, people nationwide have spoken out and made absolutely clear they reject President Trump’s hateful agenda to undo progress for the LGBTQ community or disparage others based on their sex, religion, or race. This is now President Trump’s second failed nomination for the critical post of Army Secretary. It’s time for President Trump to stop trying to divide our country and instead nominate a leader with the credibility and integrity necessary to lead our modern, diverse, all-volunteer force.”
