Live from the Cleveland Republican Dumpster Fire: The very sharp Brian Buetler points us to the Senate Majority Leader:
Mitch McConnell: Trump 'Wrong' on NATO:
I disagree with [Donald Trump]. NATO is the most important military alliance in world history. I want to reassure our NATO allies that if any of them get attacked, we'll be there to defend them.... I think he's wrong on that. I don't think that view would be prevalent or held by anybody he might make secretary of state or secretary of defense...
U.S. Constitution: Art. II: §2:
The President shall be Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States...
The President. Not the Secretary of State. Not the Secretary of Defense. Not the Chief Officer of the
Praetorian Guard Secret Service. Not the Commander of Joint Base Andrews.
