There is a new book coming out from Donald Trump’s former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper which claims that the ex-president wanted to have Black Lives Matter protesters shot in the summer of 2020. The book is called A Sacred Oath and it claims that Trump said, “can't you just shoot them? Just shoot them in the legs or something?” Esper followed up by saying, it “wasn’t a difficult decision” to say no, but that the bad news was “I had to figure out a way to walk Trump back without creating the mess I was trying to avoid.” Republicans claim nowadays to be the party of “free speech” and yet their leader wanted to have people shot for simply exercising their First Amendment rights. This information would have been valuable to know at the time it happened, not two years later when a former Trump administration official is trying to sell a book.
