Missed the point
"One of the things the decider-in-chief has to do is decide whether he’s going to bring this country together across all its diversity or let it drift apart. Look at how much stronger the American military is because it is less racist, less sexist and less homophobic and we’re just looking for people who can do the job."
I think the former President missed a huge point here. I don't believe the American military was more racist, sexist or homophobic under previous presidents. I think the military policy makers suffered from those afflictions. The men and women who serve in our military are far superior in their sophistication and dedication than our policy makers have ever given them credit for.
