“For him to say that I was going to attack China is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard, and everybody knows it,” says former president.
Former President Donald Trump reacted to reports from Bob Woodward’s book “Peril” that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley secretly informed China he would give them advanced notice if America mobilized an attack.
“So first of all 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 said on Newsmax on Tuesday.

“I’ve had so many calls today saying, ‘That’s treason,’” Trump continued. “For him to say that I was going to attack China is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard, and everybody knows it.”
“I have to tell you, I don’t know if they have him on tape saying this, but I found Woodward and I found his cohorts to be extremely dishonorable people,” Trump noted. “I did not ever think of attacking China.”
“For him to say that I would even think about attacking China, I think he’s trying to just get out of his incompetent withdrawal out of Afghanistan,” the 45th President claimed.
“The worst, the dumbest thing that anybody’s seen, probably the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to our country. They killed our soldiers, we left with embarrassment on our face, we left Americans behind, and we left $85 billion dollars worth of the best equipment in the world, that I bought, because I rebuilt the military, and then Biden gave it away,” he added.
