Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa alleged in their upcoming book “危险” that Milley made two secret phone calls to Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, his Chinese counterpart.

Milley reportedly made the calls before the 2020 presidential election on Oct. 30, 2020, and two days after the Jan. 6 国会暴动, 一月. 8, 2021, and assured Zuocheng of the stability of the American government. He also allegedly assured the Chinese general that he would contact him regarding any imminent attack from the U.S. in the waning days of Trump’s presidency.

“所以, 首先, if it is actually true, which is hard to believe, that he would have called China and done these things and was willing to advise them of an attack or in advance of an attack, that’s treason,” Trump told host Sean Spicer on NewsmaxTV’sSpicer & 公司”

I’ve had so many calls today saying that’s treason, 第一,” 特朗普继续. Acknowledging he was tough on China regarding trade and COVID-19, he went on to describe astotally ridiculousthe idea that he would order an attack on China.

In a statement released shortly after the interview, Trump called on Milley to step aside, floating a theory that Milley came up with the story himself and leaked it to Woodward and Costa, whom he described as writers offiction, not fact.单击此处了解我们的更多故事.
