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.

Drug Smugglers Have Already Beaten Trump's Wall

Drug Smugglers Have Already Beaten Trump's Wall
- The "great, great wall" Trump wants to build isn't just aimed at stopping the people from crossing illegally into the United States; it's also supposed to stop the narcotics. But it isn't going to work.
To be blunt, the U.S. government is not likely to outspend the drug cartels at the border. Even if Trump is willing to put up the $21.6 billion the Department of Homeland Security estimates constructing a barrier would cost, the illegal drug trade is a $350 billion international business, according to the United Nations World Drug Program. A 2014 report from RAND Corp. estimated the American drug market for the four most prevalent illicit drugs—cannabis, heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamines—at $100 billion annually. The profit incentives to find ways over, under, around, or through any border infrastructure are high, and the cartels have more than enough money to spend on R&D.
