BREAKING: Pentagon Changing Mission At The Border One Day After Midterms, No Reason Given
President Donald Trump and his administration have been accused of using the 'illegal immigrant caravan' story of trying to unduly pander to his supporters and possibly affect the midterm elections
He drew criticism of sending 5,000 plus military U.S. troops to the border and inciting suggestions that if any members of the caravan throw rocks, the military would treat it like gunfire.
Now, it's being reported by NBC News, that the Pentagon is changing its mission at the Mexican border. It will no longer refer to it as "Operation Faithful Patriot." When indicating the change, they gave no reason.
What's odd about this is that the change happened less than 12 hours after the midterm elections, not even a full day.

Related: Now that Democrats control the House, the Armed Services Committee has stated that subpoenas are coming in regards to the reason Trump wanted to send so many troops to the border, when the caravans were more than a 1,000 miles away.
If it's found out that the election had anything to do with it, as well as costing the United States somewhere around $300 million for such a dubious reason, it will not be a pretty sight for this White House.
Trump has already stated that he wanted to focus on immigration instead of the economy in order to drum up support for Republicans.
