Former President Donald Trump on Friday launched a furious attack on General Mark Milley, who recently claimed that he had to rein in Trump’s actions during his time in office.
Trump’s explosive reaction came in the wake of a detailed report that shed light on how Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley and other key military and intelligence figures had to temper Trump’s decision-making during his presidency.
Trump, known for his previous clashes with General Milley, took to his Truth Social media platform, established after his ban from several other social media networks, to express his grievances. In his fiery rant, Trump blamed Milley for lives lost in the Afghanistan withdrawal.
“Mark Milley, who led perhaps the most embarrassing moment in American history with his grossly incompetent implementation of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, costing many lives, leaving behind hundreds of American citizens, and handing over BILLIONS of dollars of the finest military equipment ever made, will be leaving the military next week,” Trump declared. “This will be a time for all citizens of the USA to celebrate!”
Continuing his tirade, Trump branded Milley as a “woke train wreck” and even suggested that Milley’s actions were treasonous and could warrant the DEATH penalty.
“This guy turned out to be a Woke train wreck who, if the Fake News reporting is correct, was actually dealing with China to give them a heads up on the thinking of the President of the United States,” Trump wrote. “This is an act so egregious that, in times gone by, the punishment would have been DEATH! A war between China and the United States could have been the result of this treasonous act. To be continued!!!”
