FORT GORDON, GA (WFXG) -

Last night, a social media post was published by a Fort Gordon employee just after 9:00 p.m commenting on President Trump:

“Sometimes I get the feeling that Trump was installed by a foreign enemy to weaken and destabilize America,” it states. “Has anyone else had this impression?”

The post drew a lot of attention and was later taken down. Still, people are talking about it. 

Fort Gordon's Public Information Officer and Spokesperson Buz Yarnell issued a statement today at 4:08 p.m: 

"A Fort Gordon civilian employee improperly posted a political message to official Fort Gordon Social Media pages on the evening of July 11th.  This incident is currently under review to determine appropriate disciplinary action. The online activity yesterday is incompatible with the Army values and our professional expectations of our civilian employees."
