Various leftist, Democrat-supporting officials in public service continue to weaponize their hatred for President Donald Trump, this time allegedly firing a Michigan social studies teacher and baseball coach who tweeted: “Trump is our president.”

Justin Kucera of the Walled Lake school district in Commerce Township, Mich., told the Washington Free Beacon that he was ordered into a closed-door meeting after he backed the reopening of schools in a tweet that also said the four words liberals hate most.

“I’m done being silent. @realDonaldTrump is our president,” Kucera posted on July 6. He also retweeted a Trump posting reading: “Schools must open in the fall!!!”

Kucera said school officials gave him an ultimatum during the meeting.

“I was required to meet with [human resources], the superintendent, and my principal [on July 10],” Kucera said. “They initially took my statement on why I tweeted those tweets and they told me they would have a decision about my future employment in the upcoming days. When they completed the meeting, I was told I had the option to either be fired or resign.”

FOX News could not immediately reach the school district or Principal Ali Hamka for comment.

Kucera told the Free Beacon that he was sorry for the negative attention the tweet generated, but not for what was said.

“I know a lot of people are just rooting for Trump to fail, and I don’t think that anybody should do that,” Kucera said. “Agree with him or not, you should want the president to do well.”

Parents and students described Kucera as apolitical and supportive of students, the Free Beacon reported, and other teachers in the district have expressed their anti-Trump views with no consequences.
