    "Citezens?"

    Last time I checked, the rioters were killing US citizens.  

    Bill Clinton had Timothy McVeigh killed.  He was a US citizen.  

    Trump is working for the vast majority of US citizens that aren't rioting, pilaging, and murdering.

    Yes.  The military is not trained to stop protests.  They are trained to kill the enemy.  It makes them bad at police tasks, and they are normally prohibited from doing so by the Posse Commitatus Act of 1870 and Insurrection Act of 1807. 

    National Guard under state control does not count.  The laws don't affect the new "Space Force."  Could Trump have created it for that very reason?

      Does it make any difference what these Acts.say. He doesn't even read. Did someone put this in colorful bullet points for him?

    I believe there is a law that prevents the Army from being used for law enforcement inside the US. I am sure if Trump tries to do what he says the military will remind him of this just was he was reminded that he can not control the states when it some to show they deal with the virus. Are claimed he let the governors decide what to doubt in fact he had no control over what they did.

      It's called the Posse Comitatus Act, and it has exceptions, to include the Insurrection Act.

    How likely that would be would depend on what their "rules of engagement" are.
