In an appalling article published by CNN, author Eli Watkins claimed the U.S. troops in Iraq who had their “Make America Great Again” hats signed by President Trump during his surprise Christmas visit “may have run afoul of military rules.”
From the article:
Video footage and the written report of Trump’s visit with service members in Iraq showed the President signing “Make America Great Again” hats and an embroidered patch that read “Trump 2020.”
But troops’ requests for the autographs could brush up against Department of Defense guidelines for political activities.
Those guidelines say that “active duty personnel may not engage in partisan political activities and all military personnel should avoid the inference that their political activities imply or appear to imply DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of a political candidate, campaign, or cause.”
How low can CNN and the mainstream media go? Attacking our soldiers serving overseas? Seriously?
Trump was right when he said the MSM are now “the enemy of the people.” If this doesn’t prove it, nothing will.
