Trump hiring freeze threatens child care at two more military bases

Last week we learned via VoteVets that Donald Trump’s federal hiring freeze had killed child care services at two military bases in the US and Germany.

Now there’s news that two more bases are about to stop offering child care services for military members due to Trump’s freeze.

First it was bases at Fort Knox, Kentucky and Wiesbaden, Germany that had to suspend their child care programs. Because of the ensuing bad publicity, Trump offered those two bases wavers from the freeze.

Now it’s two more bases in Germany. VoteVets obtained an Army memo announcing the cutbacks:

This is the problem with elected someone with little government experience, whose team has little government experience, and who excels at hubris. He likes to rush and do “big things,” without any regard to the consequences. That’s how you get child care facilities closed, and soldiers killed.

    As is typical with arch-Conservatives, they make up crackpot lies, then act as if their lies are true, and ignore the consequences.

    I see big troubles on the horizon.

    Trump’s not a deep thinker.

  • Quilla

    Still don’t understand why anybody has to “obey” this so-called president if all his orders are stupid and dangerous.

    Yeah, I’m more than ready for a coup.

    The Donald had 5 children by 3 different women. His idea of child care is called “alimony and child maintence”, including shelling out for nannies.
