The Military and their Opposition against President Trump
President Donald Trump has used threat to use troops against largely peaceful protesters, as well as other attempts to politicize the military, this has ended up making an unsettled manner and a number of current and former members and their families.
This news has made its way into the world latest news, Erin Fangmann, who grew up in a military family, has been married to a captain in the Air Force for 18 years and has voted Republican all her life, and including for Donald J. Trump. But as with a number of other veterans, troops and military family members who have watched the president with alarm, her support has evaporated with a lot disappointment like most other families who did vote for Donald Trump in the first place. The dissent and hurt comes from US President Donald Trump forcing the military to act against the protestors who are currently protesting against the death of George Floyd.
“He has hurt the military,” said Ms. Fangmann, who lives in Arizona, which is one of the several states in play this November with a high percentage of veterans and active-duty service members who had to go against innocent protestors, who were massively participating in peaceful and absolutely harmless protests. She also with a huge amount of dissent brought up the fact and is as quoted, “Bringing in active-duty members to the streets was a test to desensitize people to his future use of the military for his personal benefit. I think the silent majority among us is going to swing away.”
Since 2016, Mr. Trump has viewed veterans as a core slice of his base and a group of people who can be used for whatever reason possible. In that year’s presidential election, about 60 percent had voted for him, and according to most of the exit polls, and all the swing-state counties with especially high numbers of veterans, it has been noted that these families helped him win the elections all the more. Many veterans and members of the military also stuck with him even as he attacked the Vietnam War record of Senator John McCain, and had also disparaged families of those who were killed in combat and had denigrated generals whom he fired or drove from government service for no recorded or plausible reason per se. Some conservative rank-and-file enlisted and also extremely privileged members silently agreed with President Donald Trump and his extreme ideologies.
However, in the very recent world news update, the president’s threat last week to use active-duty troops on American streets against largely peaceful protesters, and his imposition with invoking the 1807 Insurrection Act, has ended up rattling the entire military world, from its top leaders to its youngest veterans, all of whom are extremely disappointed in the actions that President Donald Trump has been putting forward continuously. If they break in significant numbers, they will be able to carry out political weight in key battleground states such like Arizona, North Carolina and also Ohio.
