President Donald J. Trump is presented with a 10th Combat Aviation Brigade challenge coin following an air assault and gun rain demonstration at Fort Drum, New York, on August 13. The demonstration was part of President Trump's visit to the 10th Mountain Division (LI) to sign the National Defense Authorization Act of 2019, which increases the Army's authorized active-duty end strength by 4,000 enabling us to field critical capabilities in support of the National Defense Strategy.

Donald Trump signaled what changes he may consider if he wins the 2024 presidential election.

While campaigning in Iowa, Trump said he was advised against using the military to quell violence in largely Democrat-led cities.

Calling New York City and Chicago “crime dens,” the front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination told his audience, “The next time, I’m not waiting. One of the things I did was let them run it and we’re going to show how bad a job they do,” he said. “Well, we did that. We don’t have to wait any longer.”

Trump hasn’t revealed any exact plans for the military in his second term but has signaled mass deportations and travel bans for some countries.

The Insurrection Act allows presidents to call on reserve or active-duty military units to respond to unrest in the states, an authority that is not reviewable by the courts. One of its few guardrails merely requires the president to request that the participants disperse.

“The principal constraint on the president’s use of the Insurrection Act is basically political, that presidents don’t want to be the guy who sent tanks rolling down Main Street,” said Joseph Nunn, a national security expert with the Brennan Center for Justice. “There’s not much really in the law to stay the president’s hand.”

Trump has spoken openly about his plans should he win the presidency, including using the military at the border and in cities struggling with violent crime. His plans also have included using the military against foreign drug cartels.

  1. Round up as many of the shitheads biden let in, send them somewhere or jail, collect up all blm and antifa and lock them up, and don’t forget the fags in (so called) universities that like ham-ass. Reinstate the draft. Maybe some pride will come back when all these lackeys have to do as they’re told.

  2. I served my country with pride in the US Navy. That’s what is wrong with young people today they have lost all respect for Law and order. The Military has a way of making Men and Women out of boys and girls besides the pride in serving!
