Inslee statement on Trump's threat to deploy military to put down protests

Source: Governor Jay Inslee

Gov. Jay Inslee responded to President's Trump's threat to deploy the military in response to protesters tonight.

"This president has repeatedly proven he is incapable of governing. He has shown nothing but false bravado throughout the chaos that has accompanied his time in office. His admiration of authoritarians around the world should not allow him to violate 200 years of American tradition of local law enforcement. We have activated the National Guard in our state and made them available to any community who requests it.

"Our country is defined by our collective character and democratic ideals, not by reactionary calls for division and not by threatening Americans with their own military."

3. yeah...that'll work.

ask your representatives. Mine voted to impeach, but I'm sure asking for him to resign would be much more forceful.

8. I've got 2 Dem senators, Schumer and

Gilibrand. But my Congressman is a Tea Party Republican who backs Trump 100%. I'd like to call on him to resign, too, but the SOB is planning a run for governor.

9. Isn't Cuomo in till 2022?

I know it's only 2 years, but it seems like a lifetime. My thoughts on the future don't go much beyond tomorrow. Morning.

10. Politicians plan ahead.

I'm hoping the guy goes down with the rest of the publican scum, but he probably won't. He's smooth.

So, next best hope is that the blue wave coming sweeps him to insignificance.

7. He was legitimately elected by a flaw in our Constitution.

He was not convicted in his Impeachment Trial.

What is the specific reason he should resign? Inslee needs a legal justification if he's to call for that as a Governor, not just moral outrage.

2. Trump never wanted to lead or govern. He wants to rule.
