Former President Trump speculated Milley came up with the story himself to deflect attention from Afghanistan


Trump starts by saying it’s hard to believe, but if true it’s definitely treason.

He also made a similar point that I made earlier today, regarding how absurd it was that Milley would even think that Trump might attack China. Trump said that never came up in any meetings and as I noted earlier, Trump was always very responsible and appropriate with military action. It was only a leftist fantasy that Trump would actually start attacking our enemies around the world, and apparently Milley fell for it. Which is no excuse for treason, by the way.

Watch the video for more:

"So, first of all, if it is actually true, which is hard to believe, that he would have called China and done these things and was willing to advise them of an attack or in advance of an attack, that's treason," Trump told host Sean Spicer on NewsmaxTV's "Spicer & Co." 

"I've had so many calls today saying that's treason, number one," Trump continued. Acknowledging he was tough on China regarding trade and COVID-19, he went on to describe the idea that would unilaterally attack China as "totally ridiculous."

In a statement released shortly after his interview on Newsmax, Trump called on Milley to step aside, floating a theory that Milley came up with the story himself and leaked it to Woodward and Costa, whom he described as journalists "who write fiction, not fact."

"For the record, I never even thought of attacking China—and China knows that. The people that fabricated the story are sick and demented, and the people who print it are just as bad. In fact, I’m the only President in decades who didn’t get the U.S. into a war—a well known fact that is seldom reported," Trump added.
