Trump threatens use of military on protesters



President Donald Trump threatened on Monday to deploy the United States military unless states quickly halted the violent protests that have convulsed cities from coast to coast, hours after George Floyd’s brother pleaded for peace, saying destruction is “not going to bring my brother back at all.”

The competing messages — one conciliatory, one bellicose — came as the U.S. braced for another round of violence at a time when the country is already buckling because of the coronavirus outbreak and the Depression-level unemployment it has caused.

Trump said he was recommending that governors deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers to “dominate the streets.” If governors fail to take action, Trump said, he will deploy the United States military and “quickly solve the problem for them.”

I’d say shoot and kill the protesters, mate .. like they are like a mob of zombies .. better to put them all down, America is lacking in suppressing this rioting while the rest of the world is actually taking action .. protesters are killing, beating, stealing, raping and more but they call it fighting for Rights and Freedom? The nonsense of it, Protesters.. just call them terrorist and do the right thing and kill them ..

Trump is sending federal troops to cities to provoke riots so that he can declare a national emergency and postpone presidential elections. This is his opening effort at a coup d'état.

i joined the Marines to put an end to these exact actions, trump is no different than any other dictator I’ve had the pleasure of helping put down. Trump deploys military to stop protestors while completely ignoring what has caused these protests. He’s a bigot and a coward. America says they stand behind their veterans while electing a man who made fun of POWs for being POWs, straight to a POWs face. This man is a bigot, coward, and a dictator with the IQ of a potato chip who is undeserving of the title he holds. Remove military from us… Read more »

State and local politicians have pointed out that many if not most of the rioters are white supremacists posing as Antifa.

Hey Trump! What a genius political tactic. Piss off the voters in an election year by using military force to end the 1st amendment right to protest abuse. What an idiot. But you still have an inbred base of social rejects to call your own.

To be fair, if the state does not authorize the mobilization of the national guard, the president is not actually allowed to force the federal military into that state. It's a violation of state rights and jurisdiction. The federal military can only be mobilized for the state by the request of the state. While the national guard is seen as "the military" it's technically not the same. Federal military is under federal jurisdiction, guardsmen under state jurisdiction. Honestly though, I don't think any governor will say no to mobilizing the guard and asking the federal military to bolster their numbers… Read more »

As a reserve member, i believe we…….as federal military troops are allowed to operate on federal land only. So we arent allowed to operate on STATE land. Army and Air Guard can operate on state land only by state orders. Guard members can operate on federal land if on federal orders. I could be wrong. A lot has changed and a lot will change soon. I should of just joined the coast guard. Lol.
