States are pushing back on White Houses explanation for singling out Texas and Florida to continue receiving full funding for their National Guard troop relief effort while all other States are set to have funds cut by 25 percent later this month. Several Governors are requesting with Trump Administration to lobby for more money. Administration Official, Who Was Not Authorized To Speak Publicly On Issue, Told POLITICO That While President Is Willing To Speak With Any Governor From Any State To Hear Their Concerns, Texas And Florida Were Only Two States That Made Case For Full Funding Directly To President. National Governors Association Disputes That Justification, Saying That Many Governors Held Calls With President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence And Other Top Officials Over Past Few Months In Which They Advocated For Full Federal Funding. But it that Texas and Florida were more persuasive, said NGA staffer, who asked to remain anonymous to speak freely. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, Democrat, is among growing group of Governors in both parties speaking out against looming funding cuts and saying they will lobby Administration to reconsider. Nearly every governor make appeal for full Federal support, Federal liaison Casey Katims told POLITICO. We had phone calls directly with White House and to emphasize essential role of National Guard in our pandemic response. President Should Never Pick Which American Lives Are Worth Protecting Based On Personal Relationships Or Political Interests. Texas and Florida, two hotly contested States in this year's election, both have Governors who have enjoyed close relationship with Trump, prompting accusations from Democratic Governors and lawmakers that funding decision was meant to shore up President's political standing ahead of November. Though two states continue to be among countrys biggest virus hot spots, they are not worst off by several metrics. Inslee's Office confirmed that governor requested call with White House on Thursday to communicate our states ' significant need for continued full funding. Gov. Jim Justice on Wednesday pledged to communicate emphatically to Defense Secretary Mark Esper that he disagreed with move, which was announced on Monday. For crying out loudly, our nation needs to stand steadfast with our he say. At height of pandemic, West Virginia had about 700 troops deployed to testing sites, food banks and public health departments. Though that number has dropped to around 400, State estimates that it will need over 7 million to take on quarter of cost through end of year. If weve get to 25 percent of dollars, well find it, Justice, Republican, say. But I would also say that I not supportive of that. In Wisconsin, where Democratic Gov. Tony Evers say Guard is need both to continue its pandemic relief role and fill in for poll workers upcoming elections.

Lafayette Square

President Donald Trump faced withering criticism in hours after spurring violent incursion against apparently peaceful protesters for purposes of staging political photo opportunity, provoking rebukes Tuesday from local and State executives, congressional lawmakers, faith leaders and even foreign governments over extraordinary show of force amid converging national crises. Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser revealed officials within her office were very shocked and, quite frankly, outraged by aggressive dispersal of crowds demonstrating outside White House on Monday evening, facilitated by police officers and National Guard troops firing Rubber bullets and deploying flash-bang grenades. Mayor Insisted No Officers With Metropolitan Police Department Were Involved In Effort TO Force Protesters From Lafayette Square And Surrounding Area. Park Was Clear Nearly Hour Before Washingtons 7 Pm Curfew Was TO Go Into Effect In Order TO Open Path For Trump, Top White House Aides And Senior Administration Officials TO Venture Across Street TO Historic. Johns Episcopal Church. At no time do we think it was that people who had not violated curfew or anything else receive that treatment, Bowser told CNN, saying she could not comment on what made federal authorities think it was appropriate TO clear way for that purpose. Prominent members of Christian clergy in United States similarly condemn Trump's decision TO then pose with Bible outside so-call Church of Presidents, which had been partly damaged by basement fire during protests during weekend. President Hoists Holy Book As If It Were Spiritual Validation And Justification For Message That IS Antithetical TO Teachings Of Jesus And TO God Of Justice, Right Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, bishop of Episcopal Diocese of Washington, told ABC News. Jesuit priest Jam Martin argued on CNN that use of violence TO remove peacemakers from in front of Church so you can hold up Bible and say how great America IS while youre promising military action against peaceful protesters seems TO me TO be complete opposite of what Jesus taught. Ahead of Trumps ' scheduled visit Tuesday to Saint John Paul II National Shrine, Washington Archbishop Wilton Gregory called it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself TO be so egregiously misused and manipulated in fashion that violates our religious principles. Late Pope, Gregory Say In His Statement, Was Ardent Defender Of Rights And Dignity Of Human Beings, And Certainly Would Not Condone Use Of Tear Gas And Other Deterrents TO Silence, Scatter Or Intimidate Them For Photo Opportunity In Front Of Place Of Worship And Peace. President Has Repeatedly Advocated For Reinforced Law Enforcement Presence, Including Deployment Of National Guard, In States TO Quash Increasingly Volatile Protests That Have Spread Across Country Since George Floyd, 46-year-old Black Man, Died In Minneapolis Police Custody Last Week.

A change in attitude

Perhaps only Donald Trump could turn withdrawal of troops into act of aggression. US President Has Directed Pentagon To Reduce Number Of US Military Forces Stationed In Germany, Where Heavy Presence Of GIs Has Long Served As Symbol Of Washingtons Commitment To Protecting Its European Allies. White House Would Not Confirm Plan, Which Was First Reported Friday By Wall Street Journal, But Current And Former Officials Familiar With It Say Trump Would Cap US Military Presence At 25, 000, Requiring Reduction Of Nearly 30 Percent, Or Roughly 9 700 Troops. As of March 31, there were 34 674 US military personnel stationed in Germany, including 20 774 from Army and 12 980 from Air Force, according to most recent publicly-available Pentagon deployment report. Some 19 000 additional civilian employees support uniform military forces, and that number almost certainly be cut as result of planned withdrawals. Reduction In Forces Stands To Reverse Increase In US Military Presence In Europe During Trump Administration, Which NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg Has Trumpeted Repeatedly To Refute Any Suggestion That America's Commitment To Alliance Might Be Wavering Under President Who Once Called It Obsolete And Who Has Repeatedly Bashed Allies For Not Spending Enough On Their Own Militaries. Stoltenberg has pointed to increased US presence as part of NATO effort to step up deterrence against increasingly aggressive and assertive Russia. Moscow undoubtedly will cheer for any reduction in US military footprint in Europe, which Kremlin has regarded as menacing presence since days of Cold War. Sometimes we also hear that US is leaving Europe. Thats not correct, Stoltenberg said at conference in London on sidelines of NATO leaders summit in December. US Is Actually Increasing Their Presence In Europe. So theres more US presence in more US troops in Europe. I cant think of any stronger way demonstrate US commitment to Europe than that. There were no indications that NATO officials had been on Trump's plan ahead of time. In response to request for comment on Saturday, NATO spokesman referred questions to US. In recent months, US President has occasionally caught allies off-Guard with unilateral military action, including abrupt withdrawal from Northern Syria that set off turmoil in region, and surprise target killing of Iranian General, Qassem Soleimani, that Force NATO to suspend its training mission in Iraq for fear of reprisals on allied forces there. Trump's pullout from Northern Syria put US in conflict with Turkey, another NATO ally, and prompted French President Emmanuel Macron to complain that he was witnessing death of alliance. On Friday, spokesman for US National Security Council, John Ullyot, issued statement that neither confirmed nor denied Trump drawdown plan for Germany.
