President Trump slammed “Dumbass” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley in a statement, suggesting Milley should be “tried for treason” for allegedly engaging in secret calls with China during Trump’s first term.
“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!” Trump said in a statement released by his Save America PAC on Tuesday.
The statement comes after a book titled Peril authored by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa suggested that Gen. Milley engaged in a secret meeting with Pentagon officials during the Trump administration in January, telling them not to take orders from anyone without his knowledge because he saw Trump as a threat to national security.
The book also claims that Milley participated in multiple secret phone calls with China’s top general to warn him about a possible attack from the United States.
“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,” Trump said about the allegations in the book.
He continued to slam Milley for the botched withdrawal of Afghanistan which resulted in 13 U.S. troops killed, 18 U.S. troops seriously wounded, and hundreds of Americans left behind.
“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!” Trump said.
Setting the record straight, Trump clarified he “never even thought of attacking China,” and said the story was fabricated by “sick and demented” individuals.
“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,” Trump concluded.
