After days of dismal treatment of their National Guard troops by the swamp in Washington, two state governors have had enough.
Governor Abbot of Texas and DeSantis or Florida–both Republicans, have ordered their troops be returned home:
“They’re soldiers…They’re not Nancy Pelosi’s servants, said DeSantis.
The unconstitutional ‘vetting’ and removal of National Guardsmen who were conservative despite absolutely no threat being found was also cited by the governors
“And this comes on the backend of them trying to investigate the backgrounds of our guardsmen … This is a half-cocked mission at this point.”
Both governors also tweeted about the news. Texas Governor Abbott said he’s ordered General Norris to return the TX National Guard to come back to Texas.
I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state. @TexasGuard

Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis had a similar message:
Last night, I ordered our Adjutant General to bring Florida National Guard soldiers home from the National Capital Region.

After hearing about the dismal treatment of the soldiers in DC, President Trump offered his 5-star Trump Hotel to the law enforcement there.
Banana Republic Biden demanded 25,000 National Guard troops in the days surrounding his inauguration, despite there being 0 threats.
Talk about white fragility…
