Former President Donald Trump slammed General Milley in a statement Friday after Milley claimed the former president wanted to attempt a coup.
“.@POTUS45 on Milley: “He tries to be a tough guy, which he is not, but he choked beyond belief as soon as a microphone was stuffed in front of his face or, at the mere sight of the Fake News Media. So, there was no talk of a coup, there was no coup, it all never happened…”

Trump said he never once gave a coup “a thought” and said he “lost total confidence in him (Milley) and the way he handled himself on our little walk to the church.”
Trump said, “What there was, was a rigged and stolen election, and those facts have come out, and we at coming out, loud and clear. Because of the Rigged Election, our country will suffer like perhaps never before with open Borders, Crime, and Inflation, which will eat everyone alive!” Keep in mind we are not claiming this is true ourselves but rather just reporting on the statement that has been released.
This comes after the Maricopa County, Arizona auditors released some of their findings which concluded there were thousands of votes which they and many others believe are questionable due to an imbalanced number of mail-in ballots received vs. the amount that was allegedly sent out, among other things. Trump thus praised Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers (R) for calling for the election to be decertified.
It seems many of Trump’s former staff and cabinet members including General Milley have “turned on him” in his view, after January 6th. In the eyes of his supporters, Trump may want to hire more trustful and loyal staff if he is to run again in 2024.
We previously reported that General Milley allegedly wanted Trump to go easier on rioters last summer than former President Trump would have liked in part:
Joint Chief Chairman Gen. Mark Milley, according to excerpts from a new book, allegedly was a lone voice pushing back against Frmr. President Donald Trump’s desire to order the military to violently intervene against BLM protestors last year. Wall Street Journal Reporter Michael Bender released a new book titled “Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost” which describes Trump’s rhetoric as becoming increasingly abrasive and violent as protests continued to happen across the country last year following George Floyd’s death.
Excerpts from the book allege that Trump would show videos of law enforcement violently reprimanding protestors and encourage his administration to promote more of that behavior. Bender alleges that Trump told officials, “That’s how you’re supposed to handle these people – Crack their skulls!” Bender said Trump would tell his team that the military should “beat the f**k out” of these BLM demonstrators, thinking that would help restore law and order.
We also reported on the allegation that Milley has been promoting “woke” ideologies in the military in part:
When questioned by Republicans in the House Armed Services Committee about critical race theory in the military, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, responded by defending the practice and suggesting that Jan. 6 was caused by “White rage.”
In a nearly two-minute diatribe, Milley ascertained, “On the issue of critical race theory … I do think it’s important for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and be widely read … It is important that we train and we understand.”
