Liberals are going nuts in claiming Trump’s forming a ‘junta’
At NYPOST by Rick Lowry --
President-elect Donald Trump has already committed a grave offense against our system of government by forming a “junta,” according to his critics.
The Trump junta consists of three former generals who the president-elect has tapped for top national-security positions, with others still under consideration. Like much of what Trump does, the military selections have inflamed people who pride themselves on their knowledge and discernment into flights of self-discrediting outrage.
There are only a few problems with the charge Trump is creating a junta, a term associated with Latin America and which Merriam-Webster defines as “a small group, especially of military officers, that rules a country after taking power by force.”
