Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff after the general announced that he will stop working for the military next week.
The Republican candidate gave something to talk about after publishing a text through Truth Social in which he assured that the announcement of Milley's retirement should be considered a cause for celebration.
“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. This will be a time for all citizens of the USA to celebrate!” Trump wrote.
Although it was the former president who appointed Milley as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he is now unhappy with his decision.
“This guy turned out to be a Woke train wreck,” he said, adding that Milley is suspected of contacting China in 2020 to tell them that he would warn them if then-president Donald Trump decided to launch any military attack against their country.
“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. 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," he said.
Donald Trump concluded his post by suggesting he has more to say about the general with “to be continued.”
In recent years, the relationship between Trump and Milley has become so complicated that the general even compared the former president to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
