Trump Complains Military ‘Can’t Act Like a Military Would Act’

President Trump on Wednesday reportedly threatened to use more military force along the southern border and expressed frustration that troops can’t “act like they would normally act” because of laws that Democratic lawmakers won’t change. “I’m going to have to call up more military. Our military, don’t forget, can’t act like a military would act. Because if they got a little rough, everybody would go crazy,” Trump reportedly said during a press conference Wednesday, according to a White House pool report. “Our military can’t act like they would normally act... they have all these horrible laws that the Democrats won’t change they will not change them.” The president also insisted that border security will be a huge issue for Democrats in the upcoming 2020 election. “...I think they will pay a very big price in 2020 for all of the things, whether it is the fake witch hunt they start out, or whether it is a situation like this,” he said. “I think the border is going to be an incredible issue.”
