REPORT: Defense Department May Keep National Guard In Washington, DC Until The Fall

Isn’t it ironic? Democrats called Trump an authoritarian and claimed he would enact martial law.

He didn’t do it, but they did. We have had a massive military presence in Washington, DC since Trump left office.

Now for some reason, the Defense Department may keep the National Guard there until the fall.

The DCist reports:

National Guard Troops Might Not Leave D.C. Until The Fall

U.S. Department of Defense officials are considering the possibility of keeping National Guard troops in D.C. through the fall, according to internal communication obtained by FOX 5.

Last month, a National Guard spokesperson told DCist that thousands of troops would remain in D.C. through mid-March. But as federal agencies continue to monitor threats to the nation’s capital, Robert Salesses, assistant secretary for homeland defense and global security, is discussing an extended timeline with the Capitol Police and National Security Council.

“If it’s not possible to sustain at the current level with [National Guard] personnel, we need to establish the number of NG personnel (DCNG and out-of-state) we can sustain for an extended period — at least through Fall 2021,” Salesses wrote in a January 20 email obtained by FOX 5.

People are very cynical about the possibility of the troops leaving at all.
