President Trump tweeted a scathing response to the decision made on Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Friday morning.
Bergdahl was granted a dishonorable discharge and no prison time after he plead guilty to endangering his comrades, according to Fox News.
Here’s the tweet:
The decision on Sergeant Bergdahl is a complete and total disgrace to our Country and to our Military.

Check it out:
More than eight years after Bergdahl walked off his base in Afghanistan — and unwittingly into the clutches of the Taliban — Bergdahl walked out of a North Carolina courtroom a free man Friday. Bergdahl, who pleaded guilty to endangering his comrades, was fined, reduced in rank to E1 and dishonorably discharged — but he received no prison time.
Bergdahl will reportedly forfeit his $1k per month pay for ten months as part of the sentencing.

Bergdahl’s defense lawyer has told reporters after sentencing that his client “has looked forward to today for a long time.”
Eugene Fidell added: “Sgt. Bergdahl is grateful to everyone who searched for him in 2009, especially those who heroically sustained injuries.”
