In June, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper went against the President, saying he did “not support invoking the Insurrection Act” to quell widespread civil unrest taking place in the country.
That was followed by reports that senior military personnel had been “lining up to voice their opposition” to the Trump administration using force to crack down on the demonstrations.
Then, author Diana West had the following to say: “I can tell you that all of these leaders are not apolitical. They either have direct ties to the Democratic machines or globalist entities or the military industrialist globalist complex. I mean these are absolutely committed partisans who have now lent their positions and the military itself, to bashing Trump, in kind of a stage of the ‘rolling coup’ that we’ve been looking at.”
In August, two former senior military officers called on Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, to pledge to remove Donald Trump with military force if he should refuse to leave office after November’s election.
This week, President Trump made remarks at the White House about military leadership being less than happy with him because they were beholden to defense contractors.
I’m still marveling at how Trump has maneuvered these libs into cheerleading for the military-industrial complex. https://t.co/fVfTevW5Ax
