*Trump administration is transferring $3.8 billion in recently passed military funding to finance construction of the Mexico border wall
*Move by the Pentagon would transfer money from National Guard units, F-35 and V-22 Osprey aircraft procurement and shipbuilding

And then went home to his Trump-loving supporters to tell them how much he supports the president.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I'm telling you, he hates our military. If only some organization could assemble a coordinated campaign to get this message out....

I don’t believe he “hates” the military, he just has no respect for anyone who would join up.

In his narcissistic world view, only chumps end up doing military service, and chumps are beneath his concern.

Thats not fair, he likes the pageantry and senseless brutality.

I'm just developing an ad campaign for the dems. I'm betting they've got much better campaigns in mind, though. (Eye roll.)

The funny/sad thing is that Republican members of Congress were hunky-dory with diverting military funds used for housing and similar base improvements for the troops (IIRC), but now Trump is trying to hijack weapons system funds from deserving Miltary/Industrial complex vendors that make such weapons.

These folks are reliable political contributors, and represent pork for specific districts. This cannot stand!
