Trump insults military - Eddie Gallagher

Eddie Gallagher was convicted of posing gleefully for a photo with the boy's corpse. Fired Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer describes the degree to which Trump involved himself in the case of Eddie Gallagher, a Navy SEAL acquitted of stabbing an ISIS captive/boy to death.
Donald Trump called Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher "one of our ultimate fighters." "I have to protect my warfighters."

"Torture works," Trump said at a campaign event in South Carolina in 2017. "Half these guys [say]: 'Torture doesn't work.' Believe me, it works."
American soldiers must have standards. The idea of a moral code which American troops are governed by is foreign to Trump.
