Vengeance is what guides most decisions by Trump. Look at most decisions as most were for retribution in some order. I call them “brat” decisions.

National Command Authority once and Election has passed also includes the new guy, as part of any decision making process.... Thats part of COG. Milley was just reaffirming loyalties to the Oath, Flag and primarily the Constituition.... no news here.

Love General Milley

Trump lost his mind. Thank you General Milley for saving Americans. You are a great man, and a great American! God bless you and all the troops!
