The recruiting office of a US Air National Guard recruit has been accused of encouraging his friends to carry out terrorist attacks in the United States.
In the video, posted on YouTube, Air National Guardsman Daniel Miller, 21, is seen posing with a sign in which he says he “support Trump” and that he “can’t wait for this election to start”.
Miller, who joined the Air National Force in January 2015, told ABC News the video was a joke and he did not know it would be taken seriously by anyone. “
I support Donald Trump and I’m tired of people getting offended by it.”
Miller, who joined the Air National Force in January 2015, told ABC News the video was a joke and he did not know it would be taken seriously by anyone.
“It’s just a joke,” he said.
Miller is now facing disciplinary action from the Air Force.
He said he had not taken the video down.
“It’s not a joke.
It’s not real,” he told ABC Radio Perth.
“The military is not meant to be that way.”
Miller, of New London, Connecticut, has been identified as a recruiter for the Air Corps, a service branch that trains and exercises US airmen.
He also served in the Air Army.
“The recruiters’ comments are disrespectful and they’re encouraging others to act in ways that are not in line with the values of the Air Guard and the Air Reserve,” Air Force spokesman Lt Col Matthew Lutz said.
“This is not the way the Air Forces operate and we take all incidents seriously.”
The video was posted by a recruitor who identified himself as Daniel Miller and who said he did “not want to offend anybody”.
In a statement, Air Force recruiter Daniel Miller said the post was an error and he apologized.
“I’m sorry if anyone was offended,” Miller said.
A Facebook post has since been deleted, but it was reposted by a different person.”
There’s no malice here and I regret making it.”

Miller said he was “thrilled” to see people using social media to express their views on Trump and said he would not condone any actions.
“If you don’t think that Trump represents your values, or you don.
But if you think that we need to change the way we live our lives, then I’m with you,” he wrote.
Miller’s Facebook page has also been removed, although he said he planned to make it back online.
