Trump has this ridiculous military school boy view of soldiers, and a desire to have his bluster pass for personal courage, of which he seems to have very little. He’s sending armed U.S. troops to the U.S. Mexican border — somewhere between 5000 and 15,000 — as a show of force against desperate men, women, and children trying to find safe haven. Now, those troops are being followed by armed white militias who think Trump is calling on them to repel the invasion. In between are the farmers and ranchers who actually live along the border.
What a ridiculously dangerous scenario, all at the behest of our bully-boy president trying to further gin up his fearful and gullible base.
