Sen. Harris was right. America army has an obligation to guard the freedoms of People. They aren’t Trump’s private safety or ego booster. The Pentagon was going to ship the troops in DC house till Trump reversed their order.
Anybody within the army can disobey an unlawful order. Sen. Harris is a former state legal professional common, so she is aware of the legislation higher than Trump ever would in a thousand years. She is right. It’ll take profession army officers to guard our democracy by saying no to Donald Trump.
