According to an “operations order” for the planned engagement, posted to social media in mid-November, “First Americans have served in the Unites States Military, defending the soil of our homelands, at a greater percentage than any other group of Americans. There is no other people more deserving of veteran support.”
He's started a GoFundMe page
to defray expenses for veterans who join in the event.
Tear gas, freezing streams of water and rubber bullets
were used to disperse protestors Sunday.
