Trump offers DC hotel to National Guard troops who were banished to parking garage

Even after leaving office, President Trump shows his appreciation for those who serve our country. 

Over the last several weeks, thousands of National Guard troops poured into the nation’s capital to help protect Joe Biden’s inauguration following the Capitol riot.

26,000 troops, to be exact. 

However, 5,000 National Guard troops were sent to a parking garage to rest in between their 12-hour shifts, despite cold winter temperatures.

The U.S. Capitol Police ordered the troops to move their rest area from inside the Capitol to the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center parking garage, according to Fox News. 

The garage reportedly had one restroom with two stalls, and there was also only one power outlet, BizPacReview reports.

One Guardsman said that on the day of the inauguration, several lawmakers stopped to take photos with the troops, shake their hands, and thank them for their service. He added, “Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed.”

This decision drew immense backlash from lawmakers, some governors even ordering their troops to return home.

Since then, the troops have been allowed back into the Capitol Visitor Center to rest, and President Trump even offered them rooms at the Trump Hotel.

    Trump is missed and even Democrats will tilt in his favour when they’ll see what Biden is doing to this country. “This is not the end” will be a historical phrase as much more is happening from now on. There will be a higher interference in this dirty business generated by the Dems and no weapon, no impeachment, no dirty tricks and accusations work against HIM!

    All I know is Biden is a criminal and the election was stolen. I will NOT pay a dime in taxes. I do not recognize this corrupt fascist government and will not be ever, NEVER EVER REST UNTIL ZUCKERBERG AND DORSEY ARE IN PRISON AND THEIR SERVERS ARE ABLAZE. SEEK ONLY JUSTICE PEOPLE DONT GET DISTRACTED EVER AND DO NOT FORGET. SCREW POLICY, GOV’T, SCREW EVERYTHING UNTIL PEOPLE ARE IN PRISON AND TRUMP VINDICATED. WE MUST FICUS ON GETTING EVERY LAST MOTHER F***ER SCUMBAG CRIMINAL THAT STOLE OUR FUTURE AND NOTHING ELSE.

    Speaking of Photo Ops – pretty laughable to see Dr. Jill with a lovely basket of chocolate chip cookies
    passing them out to National Guard. Wonder how she managed to treat the THOUSANDS there.
