In December 2019, in an unprecedented move overriding military protocol, President Donald Trump pardoned war crimes charges against three U.S. military service members, showing a callous disregard for the rule of law and the military justice system.
Yet last week, he stood by when the Navy "relieved" Captain Brett Crozier of his command of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, a nuclear aircraft carrier with 4865 sailors.
Crozier's crime? Begging his superiors for guidance on treatment for 114 sailors who tested positive for coronavirus, and after getting an unsatisfactory response he risked his career by drafting a letter that was leaked. His crew chanted his name as he left the ship.
It's obvious that unless he is attending a photo-op, Trump doesn't care about American military.
