‘I’m Not Doing That’: Gen. Mark Milley Raised His Voice At Trump For Demanding Military Troops Be Deployed Against Protesters: Report

According to a new report by The New Yorker, General Mark Milley, Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, raised his voice when President Donald Trump demanded the regular military be deployed against George Floyd protesters.

The verbal tussle happened in the Oval Office just days before Trump’s ill-advised bible photo op, which Milley attended, according to the report.

A senior military official told the news outlet that the president and Milley “got into a shouting match” with Milley insisting the military could not be dispatched against American civilians.

“I’m not doing that,” he reportedly told Trump. “That’s for law enforcement.” The New Yorker source then described Milley as brash and pushy, adding, “We have a bully in the White House, and a bully needs a bully.”

Mark Meadows, Trump’s chief of staff, disputed the account, telling the New Yorker, “There was no shouting match, in terms of any directions or any operational decision that was made.”
