IT WAS UNAUTHORIZED
The United States Navy has confirmed the convoy spotted flying a Trump flag on Sunday in Louisville, Kentucky was a Navy Special Warfare unit. Find the full response from the Navy here on the courier-journal website.
We are very concerned by this partisan political act by apparent military members in official military vehicles. Our nation’s military must remain loyal to the constitution, and not any one individual. It’s critical to our democracy that the American public be able to trust that their military is apolitical and non partisan. This type of blatant partisan political display demonstrating allegiance to a singular person brings to mind the types of actions historically seen in authoritarian regimes and dictatorships. It’s chilling. I truly hope the Navy conducts a thorough investigation into this incident amd takes appropriate corrective action.
