Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller slammed former President Trump and his son in a scathing Facebook post, saying he resents how the former president divided the country. Scheller was relieved from his duties for openly criticizing the Biden administration last month and has since been put in the brig, however, he says he would rather stay there than work with Trump.

The Daily Wire reports:

“While I respect your foreign policy positions, I hate how you divided the country,” he wrote. “I don’t need or want your help. You do not have the ability to pull US together. You may even win the next election. But your generation’s time is running out.”

“Tell your son to stop tweeting about me,” the Marine added, referring to Don Trump Jr. “Your whole family knows nothing about US or our sacrifices.”

“I could never work with you. I’d rather sit in jail and be released with a dishonorable than make compromises in my beliefs,” added Scheller.

President Obama. Great at speeches… obviously weak in any intestinal fortitude. President Bush Jr. great at speeches… obviously ignorant in thinking he could import democracy. President Clinton. Great at bringing Congress together… obviously morally bankrupt. This includes his wife. […] General Flynn. You gave interviews about me. Pretending to understand me. You are the same as the rest. You were caught in a lie. My generation is sick of your lies. We are not the same. Stop speaking my name as if you understand me. You could never understand US.

After receiving intense backlash over the Facebook post accusing Trump of “dividing” the country Scheller posted a “clarification.”

“I’ve had such a strong reaction to my comments against President Trump I felt a follow up clarification was required,” he wrote. “No, President Trump didn’t divide the country. But President Trump, in my humble opinion, is incapable of bringing us back together.”

Is this the same marine demanding accountability for troop withdrawal from Afghanistan?
If so, I need to rethink my opinion.
We have 2 choices–surrender our “inalienable” rights under burden
We ALL attempt to get OUR COUNTRY back on track.
Too many people-hatemongers- newsom, pelo-shit, goldberg,farci heels up, & burden
will NEVER accept anyone who believes SMERICA IS A FREE COUNTRY

As a retired Lieutenant Colonel and combat veteran I believe I’m qualified to say this: Lt. Col. Scheller is a complete moron. He doesn’t have a clue where his support is coming from, but he’s just eliminated it by alienating all Trump supporters. On top of that, it wasn’t Trump who divided the nation, but the full DNC caucus including congress and the media. This man has an ego like I’ve only read about in American Caesar.
