A Washington Post reporter said that he even contacted the Chinese authorities to avoid large-scale armed conflicts and agreed with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when he mentioned the president’s mental health issues.
Madrid. (European media). In January, Mark Milly was the chairman of US Joint Chiefs of Staff and ordered consultations when Donald Trump threatened to carry out a nuclear attack.
According to an excerpt from a new book by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, CNN has access to “dangerous”, and Trump’s presidential powers are therefore restricted because he may decide to take drastic measures after attacking the Capitol. It occurred on January 6.
According to the “Washington Post”, Millay had even called the Chinese authorities in order to avoid large-scale armed conflict. He also agreed with Nancy Pelosi regarding the president’s mental state.
“We don’t know what he’ll do. He is insane, you know that. Pelosi stated that he has been insane for a while in a telephone call to Milly on January 8th. The military gives him the assurance that he “accepts everything” as far as he’s concerned.
Millay also called China to ensure that Trump’s final days at the White House were not in danger from attacks or other unpredicted military actions. “We are prepared, everything is fine.” Millie explained this to Li. “Democracy is sometimes a bit strange,” he explained to Li.
The book includes additional details about Trump’s efforts to convince Vice President Mike Pence that he would not resign, and to prevent Congress from verifying Joe Biden’s victory.
Woodward and Costa report that Trump tried to persuade Pence “stand on his team” and “lost papers” on January 5th, despite the vice-president insisting on his constitutional responsibility to preside at Congress.
It would be great fun if you could do it. Trump threatened to eject him from his friendship if he did not do it. As a group of tycoon supporters gathered before the Capitol, Pence replied, “No, it is impossible.” They were preparing to attack the U.S. Congress headquarters.
A few days before the attack, Pelosi raised concerns about Trump’s mental health and sent a series of calls to the armed forces, asking senior Army officials to examine possible attack orders, including nuclear strikes.
Millay assured Pelosi however that the necessary precautions were taken to prevent Trump’s launching of war, even if there are no indications that he intends.
Millay did not notify Trump of the new agreement to follow, which included the generals notifying him of any such military decisions before executing the president’s orders.
“I can assure (…) that we will not do any illegal or crazy regarding the use of military force,” he said.
