Presidents Wilson, Hoover, Truman, Eisenhower, Bush 41, & Bush 43 all used Federal Troops Domestically but Somehow Trump is a Dictator? – UPDATED

Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush all used the Insurrection Act and/or federalized National Guard troops to handle domestic unrest and/or the threat of it.

Woodrow Wilson used it to quell race riots in 20 cities.

Herbert Hoover used it when 43,000 WWI “Bonus Army” vets marched on Washington.

Harry Truman used it against striking/rioting railroad workers.

Dwight Eisenhower used to to stop violence when enforcing integration and defend the Little Rock Nine.

George H.W. Bush used it to quell the LA riots after Rodney King.

George W. Bush used it to secure airports after 9/11.

But when Donald Trump does it to stop more cities and neighborhoods from being burned to the ground an stop put an end to 17 people being killed by looters and ANTIFA it somehow means that he is a dictator.

Gimme a break.

UPDATE – Federal Troops were on standby and not actually deployed. Elite Media gets it wrong again.
