Trump 

The former president issued a bizarre, 400-word statement yesterday, which included some extraordinary claims. Trump wrote:

He only tapped Milley to serve as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs because his former Defense secretary, James Mattis, didn't like him. In other words, according to Trump, he made a mistake hiring Mattis, and then made another mistake by hiring Milley based on the opinions of his original mistake.

He expected Milley to "protect" him during the Lafayette Square fiasco.

He was offended by Milley's willingness to change the names of military bases that were named for those who fought against Americans.

"If I was going to do a coup, one of the last people I would want to do it with is General Mark Milley."

It's this last point that practically reads like a confession.

What's more, despite the public accounts about the Joint Chiefs chairman comparing Trump's rhetoric to Hitler's -- a point that's come to the fore more than once recently — the former president's pushback chose to ignore this entirely.

If Trump hoped his statement would make him look better and Milley look worse, he got this exactly backwards.

Truth and facts...

Been a long time. Not surprised to see US politics as the main topic.   Trump - Being President was never Trump's ideas as his goal originally. Trump entered the race for two things. 1. For his br

From the article

”The phone will come pre-loaded with apps apparently designed to appeal to supporters of former Celebrity Apprentice host Trump, with the official website showing the conservative Newsmax and One America News Network prominently on the phone.”

At last they get his title right.
