Trump: Milley Committed 'Treason' by Colluding with Communist China
President Trump responds to reports Gen. Mark Milley conspired with China behind his back
President Donald Trump has responded after reports emerged revealing that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley colluded with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) behind his back.
The 45th president accused Gen. Milley of "treason" for holding secret meetings with the Chinese military while warning China that Trump is "unstable."
As Neon Nettle first reported, in the months following the 2020 election, Gen. Milley allegedly took secret action to "secure" America's nuclear weapons to reassure the CCP that the United States would not attack them.
The explosive revelations have been revealed in investigative journalist Bob Woodward's new book.
According to Woodward, Milley warned Communist China that he feared Trump would undertake military action in a desperate bid to stay in office.
Among Milley's efforts as the top-ranking military officer, he secretly met with top military officials in the Pentagon two days after the Jan. 6 riot and told them to keep him in the process for all military actions, including the use of nuclear weapons.
Trump responded to the news in a statement, writing:
"If the story of ‘Dumba**’ General Mark Milley, the same failed leader who engineered the worst withdrawal from a country, Afghanistan, in U.S. history, leaving behind many dead and wounded soldiers, many American citizens, and $85 Billion worth of the newest and most sophisticated Military equipment in the world, and our Country’s reputation, is true, then I assume he would be tried for TREASON in that he would have been dealing with his Chinese counterpart behind the President’s back and telling China that he would be giving them notification ‘of an attack.'”
"Can’t do that!” Trump continued.
"The good news is that the story is Fake News concocted by a weak and ineffective General together with two authors who I refused to give an interview to because they write fiction, not fact.
"Actions should be taken immediately against Milley, and better generals in our Military, of which we have many, should get involved so that another Afghanistan disaster never happens again.
"Remember, I was the one who took out 100% of the ISIS Caliphate.
"Milley said it couldn’t be done!”
"For the record, I never even thought of attacking China—and China knows that,” Trump concluded.
"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 also made similar comments while appearing on Newsmax Tuesday.
"So first of all, if it is actually true," said Trump, then "that's treason!"
"And I would think, I've had so many calls today saying that's treason."
A former senior U.S. official also slammed Milley in a statement to The Washington Post, saying that “it was dangerous for Mark Milley to be doing freelance diplomacy on China without involving any of the other senior officials dealing with China at the time.”
"Milley was making these phone calls at a time when the U.S. government was in the middle of very complicated discussions with and actions against the PRC. For him to take this sort of action without any interagency coordination is astonishing,” the official continued.
"The risk is [Milley] could have caused the Chinese to miscalculate and take some sort of diplomatic, economic or military action with far ranging consequences, because he was giving the wrong signal, having no understanding of the context in which he was making the call.”
