Former President Trump and Nancy Pelosi’s feud is far from over. On Thursday, Trump issued a statement from his Save America PAC responding to comments the House Speaker made to Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Mark Milley she was concerned Trump would use nuclear weapons in his final days as president. The remarks come from a new book on the last year of the Trump administration.
“Nancy Pelosi is a known nut job,” Trump said. “Her enraged quotes that she was afraid that I would use nuclear weapons is just more of the same. In fact, I was the one that got us out of wars, not into wars. And I was the one who got respect for our Country again, not like now when the leaders of the entire World are laughing at us. They didn’t laugh when I was there!”
According to Newsmax:
Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker have written “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year.” In it, according to the Post, they say Pelosi phoned Milley following the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
After the speaker expressed her concerns, Milley reportedly told Pelosi, “Ma’am, I guarantee you that we have checks and balances in the system.”
Less than a week later, as military and law enforcement leaders planned for President Joe Biden’s inauguration, Milley reportedly said he was determined to avoid a repeat of Jan. 6.
“Everyone in this room, whether you’re a cop, whether you’re a soldier, we’re going to stop these guys to make sure we have a peaceful transfer of power,” MIlley told them, according to the book. “We’re going to put a ring of steel around this city and the Nazis aren’t getting in.”
Trump has previously called on Gen. Mark Milley to resign, saying he has bent to the whims of the “woke mob.”
Trump said, “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.”
