Former President Donald Trump claimed Wednesday that he was completely in the dark about Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, speaking to his Chinese counterpart in the final months of the Trump administration.
“Milley never told me about calls being made to China,” Trump said in an emailed statement from his Save America PAC. “From what I understand, he didn’t tell too many other people either. He put our Country in a very dangerous position but [Chinese] President Xi [Jinping] knows better, and would’ve called me.”
Gen. Milley’s contacts with a top Chinese military official were detailed in a forthcoming book co-authored by Watergate reporter Bob Woodward.
Woodward, a longtime Washington Post associate editor, and reporter Robert Costa reveal in their book “Peril” that Milley made two calls to People’s Liberation Army Gen. Li Zuocheng, one on Oct. 30, 2020 and the other on Jan. 8, 2021. (Read more from “Trump: ‘Nutjob’ Milley Never Told Me of Calls To Chinese General” HERE)
