John McCain has built his career on betraying Republicans.

Just recently, he stabbed Trump and conservatives in the back by providing the decisive vote to kill efforts to repeal Obamacare.

But now he is threatening to undermine Trump with a move that some say is calling for a coup.

The President is the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces.

He has the final call on military matters.

And for our country to function there can only be one Commander-in-Chief at a time.

But now John McCain is threatening a constitutional crisis by usurping the powers of the President.

Trump has rejected the generals plan to escalate the war in Afghanistan.

He has questioned why America is still at war 16 years later.

It’s a question many Americans are asking as well.

But John McCain wants war everywhere all the time.

Now he’s threatening to force Congress to impose an Afghanistan strategy on the President in a clear violation of Trump’s powers as Commander-in-Chief under Article Two of the Constitution.

CNN reports:

“Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain on Monday threatened to present President Donald Trump with his own Afghanistan strategy if the Trump administration won’t develop its own.

McCain issued a statement saying he would offer an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act in September that would provide a strategy for Afghanistan, the 16-year war that has been a divisive issue within the White House.

“More than six months after President Trump’s inauguration, there still is no strategy for success in Afghanistan,” the Arizona Republican said. “Eight years of a ‘don’t lose’ strategy has cost us lives and treasure in Afghanistan. Our troops deserve better. When the Senate takes up the National Defense Authorization Act in September, I will offer an amendment based on the advice of some our best military leaders that will provide a strategy for success in achieving America’s national interests in Afghanistan.”

It’s not John McCain’s place to set Afghanistan policy.

Congress has the right to vote on funding for a war effort or to declare war, but they have no right to dictate how a war is conducted.

Trump supporters are blasting this move as a coup against Trump.

The Presidents most powerful authority under the Constitution is as Commander-in-Chief.

And now John McCain is proposing legislation to steal it away.

It’s unconstitutional and it represents another example of the establishment refusing to accept the results of the election.

Trump won the election because he campaigned against nation building and reckless foreign wars.

But John McCain – as well as National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster – support increasing the number of troops in Afghanistan and working to undermine the President.

That’s because Trump has rejected their calls for more troops.

Breitbart reports:

“McMaster has particularly sparred with other members of the administration on an Afghanistan plan with an increase of 3,000 to 5,000 U.S. troops there. Defense Secretary James Mattis reportedly did not support the plan.”

Trump supporters are worrying these establishment aligned figures are trying to overturn the results of the election and impose their policies on America despite the fact that they were rejected by the American people.

If the voters wanted more foreign wars they could have picked Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio or any other establishment Republican to be the next President.

But they chose Trump and his America First agenda.

Now the establishment – led by John McCain – is trying to stage a coup and nullify the election.
