Trump took issue with Milley's recent claim that he was fearful that the former president was going to attempt a coup to remain in power after the election of 2020.
"Despite the fact that the 2020 Presidential Election was Rigged and Stolen, and while numerous people, including the outside public, were saying that we should bring in the Military, I never even gave it a thought," Trump said.
"The writings within these these third-rate books are Fake News, and 'General' Milley (who Mattis wanted to send to Europe in order to get rid of him), if he said what was reported, perhaps should be impeached, or court-martialed or tried," Trump said.
Trump claimed that he never once had a discussion with Milley about bringing in the military or staging a "coup" and suggested that Milley was fearful of microphones and the media.
"He tries to be a tough guy, which he is not, but he choked beyond belief as soon as a microphone was stuffed in front of his face or, at the mere sight of the Fake News Media. So, there was no talk of a coup, there was no coup, it all never happened, and it's just a waste of words by fake writers and a General who didn't have a clue," Trump said.
