Chelsea Manning on Veterans Day: Stop Letting Troops Be Killed For 'Your Nationalist Fairy Tales'
Chelsea Manning tweeted a not-so-veiled jab at President Trump as part of her Veterans Day message.
"Want to support veterans !? Stop sending us overseas to kill or be killed for your nationalist fairy tales. We can do better," the transgender Army veteran tweeted on Saturday.

Manning, 29, was released in January 28 years early from a 35-year prison sentence for publishing illegally more than 700,000 classified government documents on WikiLeaks.
Shortly before he left office President Obama commuted her sentence for 22 charges, including "aiding the enemy."
She was named "Newsmaker of the Year" by Out 100 this week.
