According to the The Daily Wire, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has ordered National Guard troops stationed in D.C., to secure the inauguration for Joe Biden, to return back home to Florida.
DeSantis called the “mission” in D.C. “half-cocked” and blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for treating troops like her “servants.”
A stunning 25,000 troops from across the country were ordered into D.C. to secure the inauguration of Joe Biden, more than the troops in D.C. that we have sent than Iraq, and Afghanistan combined.
Last night some disturbing photographs were revealed to show our National Guard troops sleeping in cold parking garages after the Senate kicked them out of the capital building.
“Thousands of National Guardsmen were forced to vacate congressional grounds on Thursday and have been photographed having to sleep in parking garages while temperatures in the nation’s capital were set to dip down to near freezing temperatures,” the Daily Wire continued “The photos of the living conditions that the National Guardsmen were forced to endure come after Democrats took complete control of the federal government this week following Joe Biden being sworn in as the nation’s 46th President.”
Later that night Congressman Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) greeted some of the troops in the parking garage and brought them all pizza.
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott (TX) was also quick on ordering National Guardsmen stationed in D.C. to return to Texas.
“I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state,” Abbot said on Twitter.
Earlier this week, Abbott ripped into the so-called “loyalty” screening of National Guard troops sent to D.C. for the inauguration.
Notably, service members are already screened for ties to extremism or other potential red flags, but these latest screenings were to see who is suspicious of supporting President Trump after the capital riots.
