President Trump’s nominee for secretary of the Army, Mark Green, withdrew from consideration on Friday, after drawing fire over anti-gay, transphobic and anti-Muslim comments. The uproar followed newly unearthed recordings including a video in which the Tennessee Republican state senator accuses public schools of indoctrinating children in Islam, and a radio interview in which Sen. Green compares transgender people to ISIS militants. Trump’s first nominee for Army secretary, billionaire Vincent Viola, withdrew in February saying he was unable to disentangle himself from his business ties.
