In a new statement released by his Save America PAC, former President Trump called on General Mark Milley to resign.
“When Black Lives Matter rioters were threatening to destroy Washington, D.C., he practically begged me not to send in the military to stop the riots,” Trump said in the statement.
“Milley later issued an embarrassing and groveling apology for walking at my side to St. John’s Church, which far-left rioters almost burned to the ground the day before,” he continued.
“Instead of denouncing the rioters, he denounced himself — a humiliation for our Military. A year later even the Fake News had to admit that their Lafayette Square narrative was a giant lie. Milley, once again, looked like a fool,” he added.
“Now, in yet another desperate ploy to impress the Radical Left and keep his job, Milley made-up a false story that he yelled at me in the Situation Room. This is totally Fake News,” Trump claims, adding “If he had displayed such disrespect for his Commander-in-Chief I would have fired him immediately.”
Monday, an excerpt from Michael Bender’s book “Frankly, We Did Win This Election” claimed Trump shouted at Milley “I said you’re in f****** charge!” when discussing how to handle the DC riots.
“Well, I’m not in charge!” the general allegedly responded according to Bender. “Goddamnit. There’s a room full of lawyers here. Will someone inform him of my legal responsibilities?” Milley asked as told by Bender.
