Biden slams Trump, says won't use military as a 'prop'

Aug 30, 2020 10:51 IST

Joe Biden said on Saturday that as president, he would never use the military as a prop or private militia and accused President Donald Trump of employing US forces to settle personal "vendettas” and violate citizens’ rights.
The Democratic presidential nominee, in a virtual address to the National Guard Association of the United States’ general conference, said Trump recommended “that you should be deployed to quote, dominate, your fellow citizens for exercising their right to peacefully protest.
His comments came a day after Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress that the armed forces will have no role in carrying out the election process or resolving a disputed vote.
