Trump calls Milley story 'fake news'

The following is the complete story:

Trump calls Milley story 'fake news'
BY MYCHAEL SCHNELL - 09/14/21 07:55 PM EDT

Former President Trump on Tuesday blasted new reporting about Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley as “fake news” after the release of a bombshell passage from an upcoming book by veteran journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

Trump said the account written by Woodward and Costa in their book “Peril,” which is set to be released Sept. 21, was “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.”

His comments come after The New York Times and CNN, which obtained copies of the book, reported that Milley called his Chinese counterpart in the waning months of the Trump administration to reassure him that Trump did not have plans to attack China as part of a ploy to remain in power.

The Times reported that according to the book, U.S. intelligence in the days before the 2020 election revealed that the Chinese believed Trump was preparing to launch a military strike to manufacture an international crisis that he could then work to solve as part of a plan to solidify a victory in the upcoming election.

Milley, who was reportedly becoming increasingly concerned about China’s rising military capabilities and the possibility that one deceptive action could spark conflict between the two nations, called Gen. Li Zuocheng of China twice to discuss the situation.

He was reportedly looking to assure the general and Chinese President Xi Jinping that the U.S. was not preparing a strike, and note that the U.S. was not collapsing after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol shook the nation.

“Things may look unsteady,” the authors said Milley told Gen Li Zuocheng of China on Jan. 8, according to the Times.

“But that’s the nature of democracy, General Li. We are 100 percent steady. Everything’s fine. But democracy can be sloppy sometimes,” he reported added.

Trump, in a statement on Tuesday, said if the story about “Dumbass” Milley is true, it would be treasonous. The former president also attacked Milley for the U.S.’s messy withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“If the story of “Dumbass” 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,’ ” Trump wrote.

He rejected the contents of Woodward and Costa’s reporting, contending that he “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,” he added.

The revelation about the communication between Milley and his Chinese counterpart was just one in a number of revelations in Woodward and Costa’s forthcoming book.

The authors also reported that Milley moved to limit Trump’s ability to order a military strike or launch nuclear weapons following the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

 A rouge general going around telling everyone he was in charge,  it's a plausable story.  Seems pretty easy to confirm.
Trump was surrounded by people trying to undermine him from day one.

I have always believed that if CNN said it, it's a lie and if MSNBC said it, it's completely fabricated. But one thing is for sure, Milley is a traitor to this nation.

Trump is believable because he has nothing to lose and does give a fuck about anyones feelings.
He never needed power, and he certainly didn't need the fame and fortune that comes with being president.
All these other cretins are just jockeying for position, trying to get noticed and grab their 15 minutes of fame.

I tend to think that if something like that ever really happened, there is no way the story would ever hit the light of day.
People would be killed to keep those kinds of secrets.

I don’t believe Trump is an ideologue on one side of the fence or the other and therefore didn’t have that instinctive sense of distrust that DC instills in the swamp creatures who are obsessed only with political power.  

He truly wanted to make the country a better place for all of us and thought everyone or at least most would unite behind him for the greater good.  Boy howdy, was he wrong, but he had no way of knowing how bad it was prior to when he was sworn in.  I knew the MSM would lose their minds even worse than they did with George Dubya (which was really bad), but the amount of resistance he was met with by his own government bureaucracies were unprecedented and absolutely criminal given how he was lawfully elected.

He will call Milley a liar.

Woodward has lied so many times even he doesn’t know when he is telling the truth anymore.  

This is probably all to sell a book. Milley is still a treasonous fuck though.

The IC/Atlanticists globalists vs the Obama Marxist globalists.  

When Lieutenant Colonel to you Vindman starts throwing hate on Miley it's clear to me this is just a way to go after someone from the Obama/Biden team for taking away their toy and prestige (Afghanistan and foreign influence.and money).

Did Miley make the call?  Don't know.  Apparently there are people who were there who are willing to testify.  Sure.  Okie dokie, so why did they wait to this moment?

If they wanted to call out someone they should call out Obama's peeps and Biden but they won't.  It's not like any of these people care about us or Afghanistan anyway.

My impressions are similar. He wanted to make changes and honestly try to fix things with America's best interests in mind. He was willing to try and work with people from both sides but was simply unprepared for the level of self interest, corruption and swamptitude that was around him.

The level of insider sabotage also highly surprised me. I never realized how bad it could be.

And that's essentially it right there.

The media is using this "fake news" quote to try and claim that Trump said that the China call didn't happen, when that is NOT what Trump said. Trump said that the garbage about him being unstable and ready to nuke China was fake news.

He rejected the contents of Woodward and Costa’s reporting, contending that he “never even thought of attacking China — and China knows that.”

This is how the media lies. This is how the Left lies.

I don't think the OP knows how to read that accurately.

None of that is a complete quote, and even in the article as is, it appears Trump thinks the idea he would go rogue is fake news. He thinks Milley should be tried for treason, if what the lefties said about him in the book is true.
