President Trump's pardon of Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher was highly controversial. What are your thoughts on the matter?
The president is the top-most military leader in our country. What he says, goes — period.
Trump may have the right to pardon anyone he wants, but that doesn't mean he's in the right. In this case, I think a pardon sent the wrong message to the American people and the world.
I don't see why posing with the body of a literal terrorist is an issue anyone should be mad about.
I don't get why the president felt he needed to step into this case, since Gallagher was already not going to serve time, and that he was (rightfully) going to be stripped of his Trident for his heinous actions.
This isn't just about Gallagher; how Trump has used his pardoning powers over his tenure has been troubling for the rule of law, and should be an apolitical issue.
This is not an issue I care about.
