Trump Calls on Joint Chiefs General to Resign

Former President Donald Trump is calling on Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to resign.

The 45th president made his case in a tweemail on Wednesday, echoing experts from a book claiming Milley clashed with Trump over the handling of the racial justice protests last summer and a viral moment last week when the general defended the teaching of critical race theory in military institutions during a hearing.

“Gen. Milley ought to resign, and be replaced with someone who is actually willing to defend our Military from the Leftist Radicals who hate our Country and our Flag,” Trump said.

He referred to Milley speaking out after reports suggested the National Guard and police removed Black Lives Matter protesters from Lafayette Square so the 45th president could pose for a photograph, saying he should not have been present in an “environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.”
