Former Marine Staff Sergeant Steven Gern decided to make a Facebook video discussing President Trump’s temporary travel ban while he was over in Iraq working as a private security contractor in Iraq. The video went viral very quickly, garnering over 44 million views in a very short time span.
Re Sergeant’s Gern video got a lot of attention because of his unique perspective on the situation being in Iraq himself. He asked Iraqi’s a very simple question and their answer shocked many viewers who were unfamiliar with what it’s like to be an American in Iraq.
Gern was removed from his job overseas after this video became so popular and spoke to Fox News’ Sean Hannity about the issue.
