The guardsmen belonging to Florida and Texas will return home after the governors of these states recalled them over the outrageous living and working conditions in DC.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recalled the troops he sent to ensure Inaugural Day’s security and put the blame on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for them being removed to local garages.
“Last night, I ordered our Adjutant General to bring Florida National Guard soldiers home from the National Capital Region,” DeSantis tweeted.
“They are soldiers. They are not Nancy Pelosi’s servants. This is a half-cocked mission at this point and I think the appropriate thing is to bring them home.”
Following DeSantis’ steps, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott also ordered the State National Guard members back after images emerged picturing soldiers lying on garage grounds in freezing cold.
“I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state,” Abbott tweeted. He also criticized vetting the troops ahead of Biden’s inauguration.
“This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever heard. No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard.”
He concluded: “I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC. I’ll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.”
