A Tennessee doctor known for his barbed social-media criticism of President Trump — and who recently sued the president and won — has lost his job at Vanderbilt University.

Eugene Gu, 32, said he was let go from his five-year residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) on Friday after only two and a half years in the program.

The article goes on to state the following:

Gu told The Hill that the university’s decision not to renew his contract was “the same as me being fired.”

“If you don’t complete all 5 years of your general surgery residency, you don’t get credit for partial completion or anything like that. It’s just like not doing residency at all,” Gu explained.

Gu, a well-known figure on social media who has written as a contributor for The Hill, claimed the “overarching” reason Nashville’s largest hospital decided not to renew his contract was because of his criticism of Trump on Twitter, his successful participation in litigation against the president and his public opposition to racism online.
