According to a new book by Carol Leonnig and Phil Rucker, Trump even considered a military coup, though he faced opposition from Mark Milley. In a Friday statement Trump complained that if the General did give this information to the Washington Post scribes, he should be court martialed as a result.
The former President wrote in a statement, “The writings within these third-rate books are Fake News, and ‘General’ Milley (who [former Defense Secretary James] Mattis wanted to send to Europe in order to get rid of him), if he said what was reported, perhaps should be impeached, or court-martialed and tried.”
The missive continued, “So, there was no talk of a coup, there was no coup, it all never happened, and it’s just a waste of words by fake writers and a General who didn’t have a clue.”
Trump also blasted Milley on Thursday, saying, “Never once did I have a discussion with him about bringing in the Military, or a ‘coup,’ which makes sense, because I lost total confidence in him and the way he handled himself on our little walk to the church.”
