Trump Army secretary nominee withdraws

Army Secretary nominee Mark Green has withdrawn from consideration, he announced Friday.

“It is with deep regret I am withdrawing my nomination to be the secretary of the Army,” he said in a statement.

Democrats and military groups fiercely opposed Green over his past comments about the LGBT community, Muslims and Latinos as well as legislation he worked on in the Tennessee state senate.
