“Selfie with my organized protestors,” he wrote.

The protestors appear to be a small group of mainly women, and they are seen holding signs about repealing the “Trump Tax.”

Taylor enlisted in the Navy in 1997 and was assigned to SEAL Team 4 after completing BUD/S. He served in the U.S. and Latin American.

The Navy SEAL later re-enlisted in the Navy after 9/11. He deployed to Baghdad and Ramadi as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2005, and served as a Navy SEAL sniper.

Taylor was seriously injured during a combat mission in Ramadi. After recovering, he would later go on to finish his service as a marksmanship and reconnaissance instructor.

Taylor was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in 2013, and then re-elected in 2015.

He was then elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2016, and in January 2017 was appointed to the House Appropriations Committee. Taylor also serves on the Homeland Security, Military Construction/Veterans Affairs and Legislative Branch subcommittees.
