The country is more divided than ever.
The abominable attack on Capitol Hill gave the Democrats all the ammunition they needed to attack Donald Trump and all Republicans.
Now Democrats are ignoring the horrific thing Nancy Pelosi did.
The Democrats and their friends in the so-called mainstream media have been itching to censor Donald Trump on Twitter.
He’s used the platform to great effect ever since he launched his campaign in 2015.
And the Capitol Hill riot gave Democrats and Big Tech the impetus they needed to yank Trump from every single platform.
But Nancy Pelosi is going one step further.
She went directly to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff regarding whether or not he would follow all orders from Trump.
From the Wall Street Journal:
“Mrs. Pelosi told her Democratic colleagues that she spoke Friday morning to Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, ‘to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.’ She posted the ‘Dear colleague’ letter on her website to make sure the world got the message. A spokesman for Gen. Milley told reporters the chairman ‘answered her questions.’”
Not only were Pelosi’s actions improper—and possibly illegal—but they were also ridiculous.
Trump has been trying to pull troops out of the Middle East for years and rejected a retaliatory strike against Iran after they allegedly shot down an unmanned U.S. drone.
Trump also brokered a détente with North Korea.
So the idea that he would fire off nukes in the last days of his presidency is patently ridiculous.
Also, General Milley doesn’t need Nancy Pelosi to tell him to question an erratic nuclear strike.
The Wall Street Journal continued:
“Mrs. Pelosi’s call to Gen. Milley is itself a violation of the separation of powers by seeking to inject herself into an executive-branch military decision. She can offer advice all she wants, but this call at this time has the sound of an order. It might even be construed by some as its own little coup—conniving with the military to relieve of command the person who remains the elected President.”
Pelosi isn’t the only D.C. swamp creature to undermine Trump’s foreign policy.
The outgoing envoy to Syria bragged about feeding Trump false information regarding troop deployments so he wouldn’t withdraw troops from the region.
Pelosi and the Democrats have been trying to take out Trump for years.
They never got over Hillary Clinton’s loss and have been trying to undo the results of the 2016 election ever since.
In perhaps one of Pelosi’s most divisive moments, she ripped up Trump’s State of the Union speech in front of cameras.
The Democrats have orchestrated multiple soft coup attempts against Trump and are trying to do it again even though Inauguration Day is less than two weeks away.
Pelosi and the Democrats are desperate for their pound of flesh and they’ll break the law to get it.
