Former President Donald Trump put out a statement on Friday saying that Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, should be “tried for treason” — a crime punishable by death — for taking steps to prevent a war with China during the Trump presidency.
In his lengthy statement, Trump skewered the contents of the book “Peril” by The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Robert Costa and called Milley “one of the dumber generals in the military.”
“Does anybody really believe that longtime Con Man Bob Woodward, and his lightweight lapdog assistant Robert Costa, are implying in their book of fiction that I was planning to go to war with China, but that one of the dumber generals in the military called the Chinese to tell them that he will inform them if this action proceeds further,” the statement said. “Milley may have called, but if so, he should be tried for treason.”
“I never had even a thought of going to war with China, other than the war I was winning, which was on TRADE,” Trump added.
Woodward and Costa write that Milley made two phone calls to Chinese Gen. Li Zuocheng — one on October 30, 2020, and the other on January 8 in the wake of the Capitol siege. (Read more from “Trump Says Top US General Should Be ‘Tried for Treason'” HERE)
