About: Military & Defense & Wars & Conflicts
Donald Trump pardoned two service members convicted of war crimes and reversed the demotion of another that convicted of a lesser offense over the strenuous objection of top military brass and his own Secretary of Defense. Military officials expressed deep concern to Trump that pardoning these soldiers will have a wide ranging negative impact throughout the world, showing that the US doesn't hold its soldiers accountable after they commit heinous acts, but Donald overruled them and pardoned the soldiers anyway.
