Former President Trump responded to today’s allegations from CNN previewing the upcoming book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa of the Washington Post.
In it they describe how Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Milley acted against then President Trump when it came to securing America’s nuclear weapons infrastructure.
Something that the Pentagon recently tried to downplay to Fox News.
"Pentagon officials: Gen Milley did not try to insert himself in the chain of command regarding the launch of nuclear weapons, but he made sure everyone knew what their roles were and what they weren’t. They reviewed lawful launch procedures following Pelosi phone call."
It was something previously known to the general public from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s perspective on January 8th, 2021.
"If the story of ‘Dumbass’ General Mark Milley, the same failed leader who engineered the worst withdrawal from a country, Afghanistan, in U.S. history, leaving behind many dead and wounded soldiers, many American citizens, and $85 Billion worth of the newest and most sophisticated Military equipment in the world, and our Country’s reputation, is true, then I assume he would be tried for TREASON in that he would have been dealing with his Chinese counterpart behind the President’s back and telling China that he would be giving them notification ‘of an attack.’ Can’t do that!"
Former President Trump of course referring to Milley’s involvement over the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
"The good news is that the story is Fake News concocted by a weak and ineffective General together with two authors who I refused to give an interview to because they write fiction, not fact. Actions should be taken immediately against Milley, and better generals in our Military, of which we have many, should get involved so that another Afghanistan disaster never happens again. Remember, I was the one who took out 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. Milley said it couldn’t be done!"
When it comes to Milley’s line to Chinese officials that "If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time," Trump responded:
"For the record, I never even thought of attacking China—and China knows that. The people that fabricated the story are sick and demented, and the people who print it are just as bad. In fact, I’m the only President in decades who didn’t get the U.S. into a war—a well known fact that is seldom reported."
