Trump says he made a “recommendation for troops” and then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi didn’t act on it. Committee report says there’s “no evidence” to support the claim that he ordered 10,000 troops. Trump brought up the issue on at least three occasions but in vague and obtuse ways. In January 2016, President Donald Trump suggested 10,000 National Guardsmen could protect him and his supporters. White House senior adviser Max Miller said he “shot it down immediately” because of safety concerns. After the meeting, Miller texted Pierson, “Just glad we killed the national guard and a procession”.
