Defense Secretary Mark Esper has been ordered by US President Donald Trump to allow Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher keep his Trident pin. The order was given a day after Secretary of the Navy Richard V Spencer was asked to step down from his position.
As he should. Cleared of all charges relating to war crimes and pardoned for taking a picture with a corpse. Trump did the right thing.
Trump is letting these people know who the boss is whether they approve or not.
Based on accounts from his fellow soldiers the guy was a psychopath, I mean posing with a dead body is pretty fncked up and that's the least of it. They even formed a support group to share stories of the stuff he did. Just seems odd to stick your neck out for someone like that over the objections of top military brass, but then again we are talking about president "grab them by the pussy".
That said, we as a country need to do a MUCH better job at taking care of our troops and not wearing them down to the point of snapping, falling into addiction & depression, etc.
I suppose now Trump will hire him to do his "criminal bloody work?"
I'd've let them take it and bought a real trident to present to him on live television🍻💃
It's wrong. Trump has got in over his skis on this one.
Democrats tried calling him out saying ‘tweeting is not an order’ when Trump said “[He] will not be losing his pin.” Clearly Trump was just stating what he was going to do.
Comments like these make me question if Trump supporters are actually republicans.
One nice thing about this app is how clearly the bias on some headlines stand out.
