Backed by soldiers, El Salvador’s president briefly occupies Parliament

El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele and a group of armed soldiers briefly occupied parliament on Sunday, stepping up a pressure campaign to force lawmakers to back a crime-fighting plan. ’If those shameless people don’t approve the plan of territorial control, we’ll summon you here again’, Bukele, 38, told supporters in a speech outside.

This is why we pledge allegiance to the FLAG of the United States of America. NOT to a person, or party or trend. EVERY American Service Member swears to defend the constitution against ALL enemies, foriegn and domestic.
