Just after Donald Trump incited the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley took top-secret action to prevent the now-former president from launching nuclear weapons, according to a new book, ‘Peril,’ by veteran journalist Bob Woodward and Washington Post reporter Robert Costa. Trump recently suggested that that was an act of “treason.”
The twice-impeached one-term president spoke about that during an interview on Glenn Beck’s radio show. He also noted that Milley had apologized after he participated in a 2020 church photo-op amid protests over George Floyd’s murder at the hands of police officers. Gen. Milley offered a heartfelt apology for his part in that. However, Trump took issue with that. The former president holds grudges like no one else.
“From the day he apologized, I essentially had nothing to do with him,” the former president said before calling Milley a “dope.”
“All he had to do was say, ‘It’s my great honor to walk with the president.'” Trump said.

On Afghanistan, Trump said that he told Milley that he wanted “every nail, I want every screw, I want every bolt, I want every plane,” before launching a rant about tents and hangars.”And he said, ‘Sir, it’s cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'”
“I’m a construction guy, so I understand this stuff better than anybody,” the former president insisted. “I said, ‘I’ve got to tell you, you’ve got to be nuts,'” he added. “It was amazing.”

Axios created a list in 2019 of everything Trump says he knows “more about than anybody,” and now they need to update their article.

Cory Booker, borders, Democrats, construction, the economy, technology, drones, and drone technology. What a stable genius!
