You Don’t Do This To Your Troops

Trump is using another ‘caravan’ moving north as a scare tactic for the election. Part of his plan involves sending the military to the border. He thinks that sending troops to the border will somehow convince people that a few thousand people from Central America going to the US border to seek asylum is an existential threat.

What he has done is take members of the military away from their families for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s, and stick them in tent cities. Those tents could be used for the 11,000 personnel displaced at Tyndall AFB by Hurricane Michael, but the “Commander-in-Chief” would rather use them for political theater. This involves thousands of voting age and eligible people having their service abused. It is the sort of disrespect that people don’t forget.
