DISGRACEFUL: @VP Kamala Harris refuses to salute the honor guard at the steps of the aircraft. It is a clear demonstration of her dislike for those in uniform, both law-enforcement and military. pic.twitter.com/7QFHzamnt7

Regardless if it a law or if it was Regan who started the salute in the 80’s, show respect to those who put their live on the line for them. There’s a reason why Regan started to do it!! He had respect vs Joe and Kamala has no respect for this nation.

They hate our country, and weren't even rightfully elected, (and we ALL know it) so they want U.N. troops here. This is how they're going to do it, create animus between them and our military.

Do you know why it is necessary to give a return solute from the President or Vice President of the USA?
If you don’t know, you must know that there isn’t any rule regarding the salute. But in the tweets, they have mentioned that President or Vice President of the USA should have to give return solute to the Army Officer.
It is their own choice that they are giving return solute in respect of Army, but we can’t say if the Vice President of US did not give return solute to Military Officer, she did disrespect them.
She forgot to salute because she was overwhelmed with looking presidential as she climbed the stairs to Air Force Two.

No matter how big our position is, but we should respect our military. If she forgets to salute back, she should take care of it in the future because if the Vice President of any country pays respect to their Military, their confidence also increased. Hence it makes them happy.
