I believe that he can't just unilaterally invoke it on the states...The governors would have federal government assistance.  The District of Columbia is another story.

 

The federal Posse Comitatus statute prohibits the use of the Army and the Navy as a force inside the country and probably could be a consideration in using them in the states.

 

 

The mistake a lot of politicians make is forgetting
they've been appointed but thinking they've been anointed.

Good luck with this topic Willam, I posted a topic about tRump considering to invoke the Insurrection Act and go no replies. I'm starting to think that many Americas are ignorant enough to support the military being called in.

 

The Insurrection Act would give the military the right to use deadly force on our own citizens. Trump is threatening it, how can people keep silent about that?

 

He has already called som military into Washington. Trump is more of a danger to our own country than to any other. America ........... WAKE UP !!!!!

He claims to protect citizens, then threatens them with military action...is that what we would term a “mixed message”! Or perhaps no real message at all...just trump’s fear and division strategy.

Seriously hoping that nothing tragic happens, because of this action. Or we may see the ire of the AMerican citizens  in force.

Trump threatens to end protests with military

This is the problem when you have an illiterate  president  He has no understanding of history or the mistakes made before. We tried to resolve civil unrest with the military during the Vietnam protests and Richard Nixon was the last "law and order" president. 

 

 

President Donald Trump on Monday declared himself the “president of law and order” and said he would mobilize every available federal force both “civilian and military” as he vowed to put an end to violent protests that have swept the nation for days.

In a brief statement delivered from the Rose Garden of the White House as law enforcement forces deployed tear gas and clashed with protesters just on the opposite side of Pennsylvania Avenue, Trump ordered governors and mayors to establish “an overwhelming law enforcement presence” until the protests have been quelled, and he threatened to send in the U.S. military to “quickly solve the problem for them.”
