If the story linked to General Mark Milley is true, then he would be tried for treason, former President Donald Trump said in a statement released on Tuesday.
Trump, however, claimed the General’s story is a Fake News written by two authors who write fiction and not facts.
Trump also said that he never thought of attacking China. Bob Woodward’s book ‘Peril’ claimed, General Milley told China in a secret phone call that he would give advance warning if US will attack, Washington Post reported.
“General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise,” US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Milley allegedly said, Washington Post reported.
Full Statement of Former President Donald Trump on General Mark Milley story
“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!
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!
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.”
