Trump chooses Christian anti-LGBT advocate to replace homosexual army secretary

Trump chooses Christian anti-LGBT advocate to replace homosexual army secretary
- While his nomination by the president would still require approval from the Senate, his confirmation for the post would keep him out of the running for the 2018 gubernatorial race.
Meanwhile, news of his nomination was met with apprehension by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. The American Military Partner Association (AMPA), the country's biggest network of LGBT military spouses and relatives have expressed their worry over the conservative Christian's impending appointment.
"We are deeply concerned over reports that Mark Green will be nominated as Secretary of the Army," AMPA President Ashley Broadway-Mack told LGBT Weekly. "Green has made a shameful political career out of targeting LGBT people for discrimination. All soldiers and their families, including those who are LGBT, should have confidence that the Secretary of the Army has their back and is working for their best interest," she added.
