Wait till he gets to the Pentagon, he will promote only like minded officers. That has been the goal of ending DADT. When you control all of the fire power who needs Congress are even elections

That’s why I voted for the pro-life, pro-traditional marriage candidate even though he was pro-amnesty / but as you said, this clown seriously altered the SC - just as we expected - we were outvoted by hopey changey hogwash
