Army General Mark Milley uses retirement address to attack Donald Trump

October 1, 2023

Army General Mark Milley announced his retirement and confirmed he would be stepping down from his position as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but he didn't pass up on the opportunity to attack former President Donald Trump one last time.

Milley became notorious for making political statements while in uniform, much to the delight of Democrats and leftists.

During Milley's address, he stated that "You say we in uniform are unique. We are unique among the world’s armies. We are unique among the world’s militaries. We don’t take an oath to a country. We don’t take an oath to a tribe. We don’t take an oath to a religion. We don’t take an oath to a king, or queen, or a tyrant or a dictator. And we don’t take an oath to a wannabe dictator."

In many ways, Milley acted more like a politician than a general, further reinforcing the rising perception that the line between the two is becoming increasingly blurred.

Milley was initially appointed to his position by Trump becoming yet another example of the former president's glaring inability to choose his allies. Milley wasted no time in turning around and stabbing Trump in the back in order to curry favor with Democrats.

Aside from the political games, Milley also allegedly committed treasonous acts like breaking the military chain of command and communicating with China secretly. By many rights Milley should be facing criminal investigation but is instead being honored.
