REPORT: Doctor known for criticizing Trump loses job at Vanderbilt
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
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.

Trump is making enemies with Trudeau and starting a trade war with Canada while going to Singapore to trade notes with Kim Jong-un on how to become a more effective dictator. What a productive Sunday. Our nation was much better off with Trump just playing golf all weekend.

This is a tweet Vanderbilt’s general surgery program forced me to delete:
“A patient did not want me to take care of him because of my race and my chief went along with it, asking me not to step into the room. #Trump”
Then Vanderbilt’s unrelenting retaliation began.

I took a knee to fight white supremacy after I was attacked at Vanderbilt hospital by a white supremacist. It is absolutely unconscionable for Vanderbilt to fire me for peacefully protesting against racism. pic.twitter.com/LD2QMrEsst
