He's defending statues by threatening the military. Americans could use a coup etat for once.
When he loses the last two months of his presidency he's gonna go completely ape shit and really show his honkey ass. We haven't seen anything yet. And just imagine how fucked up he's been up to this point.As long as he is trying to get elected and not simply doing Putins bidding to cause chaos in the US he is not defunding the military. If he loses and is in burn it down mode, that's when folks have to worry. He's trying to get traction and make the statues another culture war. I don't think the momentum is on his side. At least not yet.
