Powerful photos of National Guard troops stationed in Capitol Building by @erinschaff & @ESCochrane of @nytimes. Some rest under plaque commemorating Union troops quartered in Capitol after Lincoln’s call for volunteers to fight Confederate insurrectionists, dated April 15, 1861.

This is the truth.
Trump = racist domestic terrorism = @GOP (unless they stop supporting him)
