And who’s paying for it? Something fishy here Fascists always surround themselves with their own loyal hand picked security forces and gang thugs. Ask the German people about that. MSM LOLOLOL The dumbing of America continues… Let em, and then when they get any bright ideas (like jan 6th), watch how QUICKLY they'll be annihilated. It would be swift lile the almighty hand of god.

There are a lot of Jewish folk in Florida, they should be feeling very uncomfortable right now. This is a direct challenge to our democracy. He is building up his militia to be part of the civil war they want to start in 2024 when Trump loses again. Tax payer money to stroke an ego? Nuts!
