(DCWatchdog.com) – Touching off a political firestorm that has raged through the weekend, former President Donald Trump said in a post to his Truth Social platform that U.S. General Mark Milley, a four-star general and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and who just announced his retirement, that Milley committed a “treasonous act” and historically he would’ve been put to death.
The firestorm centers on whether Trump is suggesting that Milley should currently be executed and that by stating “To be continued” at the end of his post, he is implying that he will have Milley executed if he is reelected President.
Without any edits of any kind, here is what Trump wrote Friday and posted to Truth Social.
“Mark Milley, who led perhaps the most embarrassing moment in American history with his grossly incompetent implementation of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, costing many lives, leaving behind hundreds of American citizens, and handing over BILLIONS of dollars of the finest military equipment ever made, will be leaving the military next week. This will be a time for all citizens of the USA to celebrate! This guy turned out to be a Woke train wreck who, if the Fake News reporting is correct, was actually dealing with China to give them a heads up on the thinking of the President of the United States. This is an act so egregious that, in times gone by, the punishment would have been DEATH! A war between China and the United States could have been the result of this treasonous act. To be continued!!!”
