    WRONG!

    Insurrection Act of 1807

    The Insurrection Act of 1807 is a United States federal law that governs the ability of the President of the United States to deploy military troops within the United States to put down lawlessness, insurrection, and rebellion.
    AG Barr ‘spygate’ investigation into DOJ and FBI conduct so far indicates that for the first time in American history, the police and national security apparatus was used to spy on the Trump campaign.

    The governor of the states have to request the presence of Active Duty Military under that Act.

    This will not end well
    President Law & Order has spoken

    Prior to the announcement- Secret Service-Police moved protesters who were not violent using tear gas, flash bangs and such, just for Trump photo op at St Johns Church

    Insurrection Act - Wikipedia
    Yup, tear gassing people so he can go to some church and have a photo op
    "This is America - and here, right matters."

    12 times the president called in the military domestically - Chicago Tribune
    Well that's just ducky. That means that Trump may send the U.S. Army to 40 cities in 23 states. Our U.S. soldiers will definitely subdue anyone trying to break into a Bob's store to rip off some Michael Jordan sneakers. Someone will end up with a bullet in their back holding an armful of Victoria's Secret underwear.

    How is this going to work? How will this not cause people to take to the streets in protest over this action?

If that's the case, Trump and his military should stay the hell out, and let us handle our internal problem the way we see fit. We don't need the military escalating our situation.
    He didn't want to know anything to do with helping out the states that were under attack -- by the virus. He dropped the ball for dealing with it in the lap of each governor. But using brute force on American civilians is right up his sadistic alley. Now he wants the governors to butt out while he completes the job Putin paid him for.

    I'll say it once more for the record. "Trump is going to start a civil war and use the US army then he's going to cancel the election and appoint himself president for life". Trump is the anti-Christ of democracy. Buckle up your seat belts, it looks like it's here.
