Former President Donald J. Trump expressed doubt that a report alleging that General Mark Milley promised his Chinese counterpart that he would provide advanced warning of any U.S. military action against the communist regime was based in reality.
The Washington Post story sent shockwaves through officialdom that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs Of Staff may have committed what many have described as an act of treason if true, a grave betrayal of the nation as well as the president that he served under.
According to the report on the upcoming book “Peril” by favored establishment scribe Bob Woodward and WaPo reporter Robert Costa, Milley placed phone calls to People’s Liberation Army General Li Zuocheng, one only days before the 2020 election and the other shortly following the so-called “insurrection” at the Capitol.
The paper reported that Milley told the Chinese military chief, “General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”
Trump, who has previously clashed with Milley, denied that he would unilaterally attack China and, while acknowledging that it would be an act of treason if true, opined that the story was likely concocted to distract from the “woke” general’s failures in Afghanistan which he called the “dumbest thing that anybody’s seen, probably the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to our country.”
The former commander in chief made his remarks during an interview on “Spicer & Co,” the Newsmax show headed up by former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

Trump told Spicer, “For him to say that I was going to attack China is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard and everybody knows it, and I have to tell you, I don’t know if they have him on tape saying this but I found Woodward and I found his cohorts to be extremely dishonorable people, that’s why I didn’t do an interview with him.”
“I think he’s highly overrated,” Trump said of Woodward, “this guy’s one of the most overrated guys, he’s a sleaze.”
Trump followed up the interview by dropping a bunker buster on “Dumbass” Milley whom he said “would be tried for TREASON” if he did indeed go behind the president’s back to tell his Chinese counterpart that he would tip them off.

In one of the statements that he has had to resort to in order to get his message out since he was de-platformed from all social media in a coordinated strike, Trump dismissed the story as likely being “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.”
Trump added, “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,” he said. “Remember, I was the one who took out 100% of the ISIS caliphate. Milley said it couldn’t be done.”
He concluded, “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,” Trump said. “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.”
Whether or not Milley did sell out America to the Chinese has yet to be backed up by any real evidence but Woodward, the once-dashing reporter who was played by a young Robert Redford in a hit movie about Watergate before settling in to become a celebrated hero of the swamp,reported that Milley told will definitely sell a lot of books.
